made an alarming discovery 

recently. No, it wasn't that the 

shops in Wimbledon, having started on 
the Christmas march some months 
ago, were already stocking Easter eggs, 
but rather that my notebooks are 
crammed with doodles and drawings of 
yachts, small and large, power and sail. 
I don't claim to be an artist by any 
stretch (although, contrary to one 
recent tongue-in-cheek allegation, 
my signature was not created by a design agency), but it would 
be nice to think that the next iconic superyacht profile may lie 
lurking among my interview notes. 

I have noticed that this subconscious urge to doodle is 
prevalent among real yacht designers. Their ability to create a 
detailed sketch almost without thinking is something that never 
fails to impress me. I remember meeting Mick Leach at his 
studio to talk about Palladium and some other concepts he 
and Mark Smith were working on, and aside from constantly 
doodling while we talked, Mick also described Palladium's 
glass-sided balconies by drawing, upside down, a 3D sketch for 
me crammed full of technical detail. I wanted to take it home 
and frame it. 

I remember when I chose to study naval architecture I had 
grand visions of drawing whole yachts but, apart from being 
hopelessly devoid of any talent in the mathematical department 
(which, for a naval architect, is something of a disadvantage), 
I believed I would spend the bulk of my career realising the 
technical aspects of keel bolts - the field of dedicated styling 



was still in its infancy. How things have changed. Today, naval 
architects and designers (we won't use the word stylist - see 
page 62 for reasons why) are often considered to work in 
parallel disciplines, and our industry has seen a growing influx 
of non-marine creatives who have cut their teeth in automotive 
or industrial design, or architecture. They all get to do what 
I always wanted to do - draw those sleek, flowing lines and play 
with curves and concepts. And I bet their notebooks look even 
prettier than mine. 

What all this means is that modern yacht design is more 
exciting than it has ever been, while requiring more 
collaboration than ever before. The ability to create highly 
individual vessels marks superyachting above almost any other 
industry, and the results can be seen in the yachts we have in 
this issue. An interesting example is Atlessa IV, a 100 metre 
yacht that started life as Evergreen before serial yacht rebuilder 
Dennis Washington got his hands on it. After an extensive 
rebuild that took an estimated one million man hours, the result 
is a spectacular yacht that is essentially totally new. You can 
read all about her in our feature starting on page 68. 

All that is left is for me to wish you all a happy festive season 
and a fun-filled New Year. I'm off to buy my Easter eggs before 
the rush starts, and will see you all in 2012.

Charteryachts based on the design 
of a traditional Turkish gullet are 
increasingly popular in the Eastern 
Mediterranean, and with good reasons 
- not least of which is the masses of 
deck space and interior volume the type 
provides. Among the largest and most 
luxurious is Infinity, and her bridge 
provided the ideal platform from which 
to watch the classic racing fleet in the

When Trinity builds a yacht it does not 
disappoint, and the new 49.7m Falcon 
is further proof of its artistry. Plus 
the interior design is a finely balanced 
mix of opulence with practicality, well 
suited to her ultimate (and delightfully 
unexpected] function. Her turn of 
speed will also come as a surprise , 
particularly to those with less than 
honest intentions!

something quite special to raise the

everyone here who has looked over

Marin Kasimir snapped this eye-popping shot of the 
50m project Ventura, sister ship to Satori, at the Heesen 
yard in Oss. The Brussels-based artist uses a rotating 
camera to capture the panoramic photographs he is known 
for. 'The rotating time lets you make a real narration without 
fragmenting the scene into individual frames,' he says. 

He appreciated the aesthetic qualities of the scale of the Heesen 
yard and the Ventura project within in. 'I was very curious to see the 
structure of the shipyard buildings. As an artist, I like their framework, 
which I find almost as beautiful as a sculpture.' 






Fast Yacht Support 



AMELS and DAMEN Shipyards have purposely designed and built SEA AXE Fast Yacht Support 
vessels with extraordinary finish, comfort and aesthetics. 

With speeds of up to 28 knots and transatlantic range the SEA AXE is an all-weather craft. To free 
up costly luxury space aboard the mother ship the SEA AXE has a large capacity and is capable 
of carrying a helicopter, tenders, toys, fuels, consumables and waste, in addition to staff and relief 
personnel. 

The SEA AXE is designed to support the mother ship's cruise logistics by offering security and 
shuttle services for guests, as well as the capacity to scout for anchorages and be used for fishing 
and diving excursions. 



All SEA AXE models are available with various deck and interior configurations. The range is already 
a proven success with two Fast Yacht Support SEA AXE 5009 delivered and two SEA AXE 671 1 
under construction.

r Yacht auction site to make_ 
sales more efficient 

► A team of experienced auctioneers and superyacht brokers has 
launched a website aimed at making buying and selling yachts 
simpler and more efficient. 

TheYachtAuction.com website went live on 8 December, and was 
set up as a response to owner feedback on the process of yacht 
purchase and sale. 

'When a sale is made you normally have a lot of conditions,' says 
Andy McDougall, director of TheYachtAuction.com and a veteran 
superyacht broker. 'Our sales process is not unconditional, but 
much of the paperwork and the survey will normally have been done 
before the boat goes to auction. Then once the successful bid is 
made the price does not change. Therefore you cut out what is often 
many months of negotiation resulting from the survey, sea trial and 
everything else.' 

The site is modelled on successful auction houses that deal in 
classic cars, property and art. Like these, McDougall believes the 
site will help establish true value by increasing interest in each yacht. 

'Quite often in the brokerage process you'll only have one client 
who is interested. This way you're getting three or four people 
bidding and generally the real value of the yacht will be achieved 
a lot quicker,' he says. 'Also, with multiple bidders the price should 
go higher than if there were no other buyers out there. We believe 
it is a much more scientific way of selling a yacht than hoping 
someone sees an advert.' 

TheYachtAuction.com will be pitched at superyacht owners and 
buyers, but will work with smaller yachts, including luxury tenders, 
which may also appeal to this market. The first auction will be held 
in February 2012.

33m Briand sloop built with classic beauty and power 




► Philippe Briand's 33.44m sloop design proves that the same 
attributes can make for beauty and performance in a sailing boat. 

The yacht, which is being built by Vitters Shipyard and is due to be 
launched in May 2013, was commissioned by an experienced sailor. 

'The owner wanted a timeless yacht - elegant but performing - since 
his passion is superyacht racing. The two aims are timelessness and 
performance,' says Briand. 

To define elements that make up a 'timeless' design, the designer 
looked to yachts of the past whose style has come to appear classic, 
rather than dated. 

Some criteria of beauty have been established over the last 100 years," 
continues Briand. For me they are sheer line, curvature, which we 
learned from the J Classes of the 1930s; low freeboard, like the yachts of 
the 1960s; a long sloping overhang, like racing boats of the 1980s; and the 
vertical bow of the 2000s. Altogether those could be seen as a symbol 
of beauty through time.' 



To these elements he added a high aspect-ratio sail plan inspired by 
the latest monohulls used for the America's Cup, which he describes as 
'probably the most beautiful sail plan ever*. Like many of the other design 
cues that contribute to the beauty of the sloop, this element will also 
help make it a great sailer. 

'All those criteria are not against performance - we used them to 
improve the performance of the boat. This of course was helped by the 
new technology of today,' says Briand. 

Indeed, the yacht's hull is carbon composite - currently being built at 
Green Marine in Southampton - and she will feature a lifting keel with a 
draft of 5.25m. 

Andrew Winch Designs, responsible forthe interior decoration, 
describes the style as vibrant and energetic, with a variety of textured 
fabrics in bright and bold hues. The signature palette of lime, black and 
fuchsia is intended to complement the striking lime hull, which Briand 
describes as the owner's highly individual 'mark' on the design.

Sailing giants begin Maxi transatlantic dash 



^ An armada of the world's finest sailing yachts left Santa Cruz in 
Tenerife in late November and is due to arrive in Virgin Gorda, the British 
Virgin islands, as this issue goes to press. 

The Transatlantic Superyacht Regatta - Transatlantic Maxi Yacht 
Cup is timed to coincide with the traditional milk run of superyachts 
from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean for the winter season. 
Participants in the event, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda 
IYCCS] and the International Maxi Association, will arrive as the racing 
season begins. Manyplan to join the Caribbean Superyacht Regatta 
and Rendezvous in Virgin Gorda, in March 2012, organised by YCCS 
and Boat International Media. 

But while the tropical playgrounds of the Caribbean are sure to offer 
glamour, those making the 2,700 nautical mile crossing will encounter 



sea and wind conditions that call for skill and grit. Initially, the crews will 
attempt to catch northeast trade winds, which usually blow at 11 to 15 
knots. As the maxis near Virgin Gorda, the gentler Alize Caribbean trade 
wind is likely to be accompanied by 10 to 12 knots of northeasterly winds. 

Participating yachts include the new 66.7m Dykstra ketch Hetairos 
(which will be featured in next month's issue of Boat International]; the 
award-winning 49.7m Zefira; 35m Sojana- winner of the 2010 
Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup - owned by Peter Harrison and 
skippered by Marc Fitzgerald; Tobias Koenig's 24.89m Grey Goose of 
Rorc, a Swan 82; Andrea Recordati's 30.5m Wally Indio; and 30.44m 
Wally Kenora. 

The prize-giving ceremony takes place on 8 December at the new 
YCCS Clubhouse, Virgin Gorda, which will be opened officially in January.

50 years of Vripack 




One of Holland's leading naval architecture and yacht design studios 
Vripack, and founder Dick Boon, marked 50 years in business in 201 1 



'When I was nine years old 
^^^^^^ we lived on a canal and my 
■HH^^^B neighbour had a wooden 
German torpedo boat," says Dick Boon, founder of Vripack. 

'He was working on a new superstructure and I offered to make a 
new drawing for it. I was paid - and it was the first time I had been paid 
- with all the vegetables and fruit I could carry in my hands." 

Having just celebrated its 50th year, Boon's company is now paid 
considerably more than an armful of fruit for its designs. But it was his 
initial experiences that paved the way for Vripack's foundation in 1961. 

In his early professional Life, Boon designed and built many yachts for 
a sailing school, before moving on to work for a small shipyard, helping 
it build a 9.5 metre wooden powerboat. But on 2 October 1961 he decided 



to go it alone as a yacht designer and naval architect. 

'Naval architects normally go to a firm and learn how to do it there 
before they start for themselves. But I was not able to, because in 
1961 there was no naval architect in Friesland (a province in northern 
Holland) or the surrounding provinces. I was the first one.' 

Persuading a clientele unfamiliar with the finer points of naval 
architecture or yacht design that they needed his drawings was not 
easy. 'They would ask, "Do I have to pay for the paper?'" says Boon. 
'But slowly they understood it was a good idea to have a good design.' 

He attracted many clients as a freelancer and, with his office partner, 
Boon established Vripack in yacht design shortly after. For 25 years the 
firm designed, built and sold boats, but by 1987, the risks of complete 
yacht builds were prohibitively high, because of the variance in rules and 





regulations in the global market. Vripack closed the building and sales 
arms and focused on yacht design, fostering a new generation of talent. 

'A lot of things have changed,' says Bart Bouwhuis, Vripack director 
of design. 'But a couple of things haven't: a focus on functionality and a 
passion for efficiency in hull lines - that's what Dick inspired us with." 

Those efficient hull lines are certainly apparent in Boon's favourite 
boats, such as the Doggersbank motor yachts. The 1968 prototype 
measured just 10.8 metres, but by 1971 Vripack had completed a 15 
metre version, by 1973 one of 19 metres and by 1974 a 24 metre model. 
'I'm very proud because they are the most used seagoing vessels in the 
world - there are more than 500.' says Boon. 




M ■■■■■ i ' 



He is also fond of the 46 metre Dione Sky [ex-Turmoil]. One of the first 
yachts to be designed using a computer, the 1993/4 explorer is the only 
motor yacht to have navigated through ice from east to west Canada. 
Beside that, she has circumnavigated the globe at least three times. 
The 22 metre ketch Ashley St Mary, which has travelled to about 930 
kilometres from the North Pole, is another favourite. 'I like boats that 
can do things, that can go anywhere in the world,* says Boon. 

Vripack has in fact become best known for its explorer motoryachts. 
But like Bouwhuis. Vripack sales director Marnix Hoekstra believes 
lhat functionality as well as performance is a defining characteristic 
of Vripack yachts.

lilt 





'We don't have a real signature 
in terms of styling,' he says. 'If 
there's a signature, you have to 
look underneath the skin. We 
never compromise on the 
seaworthiness, safety or 
function of a boat. Layout, 
crew routing, guest routing, 
storage... These are the things that make life on 
board comfortable for everybody, year after year.' 

Vripack's 42 metre explorer yacht E&E, built by Cizgi Yachts in Turkey 
and launched last year (and featured in the December edition of Bl\, 
is an excellent example of this functionality. For the owner's previous 
yacht, the 36.8 metre Jasmin, Vripack had created a ground-breaking 
layout based on the way yachts are used today, and in particular, how 
that specific owner used his yacht. 

When it came time to build the new. largeryacht that would be E&E, 
the owner was keen for Vripack to use the newarrangement. Among 
other innovations, it brought guests up to the light upper deck, placed 
all crew and storage areas on the lower deck and eschewed a second 
saloon in favour of increased outdoor space. And because E&Eis larger 
than her predecessor, those outdoor areas are even more impressive. 
It is no wonder that she is Bart Bouwhuis's current favourite Vripack 



design: 'I'm very proud to 
have this evolution of layout. I really hope it 
inspires the industry to step away from the usual.' 

It is likely that it will. Boon has received recognition from the industry 
for his half-century of innovative yacht design. During Vripack's 
anniversary year he received both the annual Excellence Award from 
HISWA (a Dutch nautical industry association] and the International 
Superyacht Society's Business Person of the Year Award 2011. 

But while the veteran is very grateful for his plaudits, Boon reserves 
his praise for the talented young colleagues who will safeguard 
Vripack's reputation for another 50 years. 'I am proud of it (the awards] 
but they give these to a person, not a firm. What can I do without my 
firm? My team is very important,' he concludes. A

ShowBoats Design Awards, 25 October 2011 

► 'It's an amazing night,' said Mark Smith of Michael Leach Design 
at the conclusion of the ShowBoats Design Awards, the four golden 
Neptune trophies that his team earned for Palladium standing 
before him. 'We're really happy that the yacht has been recognised 
for what it is, which is a lot of dedication.' 

On 25 October, the winners of the 2011 ShowBoats Design Awards 
were revealed, during a celebration attended by superyacht owners 
and the best and brightest creative minds in the yachting industry. 
Guests enjoyed ocean breezes, cocktails and canapes on the patio 
of the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, before the main 
event in the grand ballroom. Local news reporter Johanna Gomez 
presided over the ceremony in which 20 awards were bestowed 
upon the design talent responsible for 201 0's top launches. 

The 95 metre Blohm + Voss-built Palladium was the standout 
winner, defeating worthy competitors in nearly every category it 
was nominated in. 'It's a credit to the team behind the project,' 
Smith said, which is everyone at Michael Leach Design and also the 
tender builders, furniture makers and the shipyard.' (Silverlining 
received five of the six nominations in the Bespoke Furniture Award 
category, four of which were pieces on Palladium.] 

Also sweeping multiple categories was Dubois Naval Architects, 
which claimed three Neptunes - two for Twizzte, the 57.5 metre 
Royal Huisman, and one for Kokomo, the 58.4 metre by Alloy 



Yachts. The 49.6 metre Fitzroy Yachts Zefira also caught the judges' 
attention; she won two awards for her owner, builder and her 
designer, RemiTessier. 

The ShowBoats Design Awards also recognised new talent 
with the Young Designer of the Year Award, sponsored by Camper 
& Nicholsons International, awarded to Michael Givens. The 
Newcomer of the Year Award went to Rodney Black Design. He was 
not only recognised by his foray into yacht design with the interior 
of the 68 metre Feadship Lady Christine, but the judges were so 
impressed that he and Lady Christine also won the overall Interior 
Layout - Motor Yachts Award. 

When asked how he felt to win in both categories, Black said: 
'Really thrilled. Lady Christine\Nas a very special build, and 
! thought she deserved to win, so I'm relieved and delighted." 

This feeling seemed to be shared by other winners, including 
Gregory C Marshall of his eponymous design studio, who took the 
Naval Architecture Award - Motor Yachts for the 45 metre Big Fish. 
"You put your heart and soul into this project, it's like your kids,' 
said Marshall. 'Then you come here and everything gets judged - 
it makes you sick to your stomach waiting! And when it wins, you 
realise all that effort you put in paid off.'

Superyacht 
Design 
Symposium 



Fresh format for the superyacht industry's 
most prominent idea-sharing event 






^ A revised format, designed for enhanced interactivity, took the 
fourth annual Superyacht Design Symposium to new heights 24 and 
25 October at The Ritz-CarLton in Palm Beach, Florida. A record 
number of delegates waded into topics as diverse as Tenders, 
Managing Risk and The Use of Glass on Superyachts. 

A unique feature of the two-day meeting of minds was the inclusion 
of yacht owners on several panels. The owners of sailing yacht Marie, 
for example, were instrumental in the exchange of ideas on the topic 
of Designing and Building a Superyacht Around the Lifestyle-Specific 
Needs of an Owner. Designer and owner Kirk Lazarus shared his 
personal insights on how having a brother with multiple sclerosis 
influenced his ideas about both interior and exterior spaces. 

Several topics were investigated from both an owner's and 
a designer's perspective. Moving Toward a Greener Yacht, for 
example, encompassed the ideas of naval architects, the owner of 
motor yacht Exuma, two technology specialists and even the owner 
of a repair and refit yard. Several case studies were also presented 




including the rebuild of 100 metre Attessa IV\5ee page 68) and 
the construction of 134 metre Serene (see the December issue). 

The chairman of the symposium. Nigel Campbell, introduced 
the new salon-style format, sprinkling the sessions with questions 
directed at audience members as well as participants, and making 
for a relaxed exchange of ideas. 

A weLcome consequence of the collegial atmosphere was the 
networking that ensued in advance of the ShowBoats Design 
Awards and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later the 
same week. Despite the fact that many of the participants would 
likely be competing later, they voiced a universal enthusiasm for 
innovation, increased professionalism and the advancement of 
superyacht design and construction. 

The Ritz-Carlton was a new venue for the event and the hotel 
pulled out all the stops to make magic, providing spectacular 
venues for meals including a star-spangled poolside buffet 
dinner and a beachside luncheon under the palms.

Spectators get up close and personal in San 
Diego, while Luna Rossa returns to the Cup 





The last time the Cup was contested 

in San Diego, 1995, the boats were towed 
far out to sea, far out of sight of the public. The 
teams were scattered around different parts of the 
city, and if you'd told a taxi driv er you were in 
town for the America's Cup, he would have had no 
clue whai you were talking about. 

In November, the America's Cup World Series 
broughi Cup racing back to San Diego, but this 
lime it was in the bay, right in front of (he city. The 
VIP guest area was situated on the deck of the USS Midway, the giant 
floating museum of an aircraft carrier, All that was needed was some good 
old reliable San Diego sunshine and a warm, moderate breeze. Unforl unalely. 
Southern California failed to provide much of either. Dull, overcast, rainy 
and mostly soft breezes railed to create the spectacle that organisers, sailors 
and spectators might have hoped for. 

It all came good for the final day, though, with a humdinger of a winner- 
lakes-all fleet race lo bring the event to a climactic conclusion. James Spit hill. 
Oracle Racing's winning skipper, has been one of the class acts of this 



season, but not THE class act that he was expected to lx_\ Having his Ixws, 
billionaire Larry Ellison, riding on the back of the AC45 in the sixth-man spot 
seemed to galvanise Spithill and his crew to a higher level of focus and 
commitment. No sooner had he won the match racing final 2-0 against the 
fast-improving Energy Team from France, than Spithill handed the helm to 
Ellison, sprayed the Moet all over his boss, and said he wanted to l>e the first 
to 'do the double' of winning the Fleet Racing Championship the next day 

After the soft breezes of the match racing, (he fleet race look place in 17 
knots of breeze. The fleet launched off the start line towards the USS Midway 
and straight into «i frenetic gybe. Spithills arch rival. Dean Marker, stole his 
thunder with a perfectly executed carve gybe and into the lead towards the 
bottom of the course. However, Spithill took some risks, weaving his way 
through the fleet precariously on port lack, and was rewarded with clear air. 
Once in the lead the Oracle skipper was launched, and never looked back, 
leaving his challenger rivals to scrap amongst themselves. 

After such a barnstorming performance. Spithill wished he could have 
Larry on the back of the boat every day. 'I just don't know if we can 
convince the lxxird of Oracle [Corporation! to let him go; quipped the 
Australian. Talking of Australians, three more of them have joined Oracle

Racing: 23-year-old match racing expert Kyle Langford, reigning Laser World 
Champion Tom Slingshy, and multiple Olympic and world medallist Darren 
Bundock. Russell Coutts stepped off the boat to give Rundock his first shot 
at AC45 competition - he duly won his first race on day one of the event, 
hut struggled in the match racing and finished dead last in the final day's 
fleet race. Not an auspicious start, although Hundock did win the 500m 
speed trial earlier in the day. beating Spit li ill by 0.1 of a second. 

Rundock's speed trial victory shows he knows how to drive a boat fast, 
and more praclice on the AC45 will make him a formidable sparring partner 
for Spilhill. 'We ll go aw r ay and work out what went wrong,' said Rundock. 
'We've got some work to do if we're going to keep pushing Jim my hard.' 

Spilhill has no doubt of Rundock's ability to give him a run for his money, 
however. 'We're not going to get the racing the challengers are going to get. 
W e're going to create a brutal in-house race series and make sure we leave 
no stone unturned and be ready to go.' 

Meanwhile, a collaboration between Emirates Team New Zealand and 
Luna Rossa has put a cat among the pigeons. Luna Rossa? Yes, I haven't 
mentioned them for the past year or so because it seemed that Prada boss 
Patri/io Rertelli had lired of the America's Cup. However, with Prada set to 



open 400 new stores in China, and the newly wealthy Chinese middle 
classes showing an insatiable appetite for the Italian fashion brand, Rertelli 
is keen to spend money on another Cup campaign. 

With the Kiwis already having employed a 30-strong design office for the 
past year, which has been busy researching the AC72 catamaran that will 
contest the Cup in San Francisco 2013. the prospect of a partnership with 
Emirates Team New Zealand puts the Italian latecomers righl back in the 
game. Presumably the Kiwis have been handsomely compensated for 
opening the doors to their operation, and these two plan to train with each 
other over the Auckland summer. In the meantime, two identical AC"2s will 
go into production, one for Team New Zealand and one for Luna Rossa. 

With a five-month hiatus until the next event - Naples in April - the 
regatta transport ship takes all the other challenger learns' AC45s back to the 
Mediterranean, with the majority opting to base themselves out of Valencia. 
The rise of the two French teams in San Diego. Aleph and Energy Team, 
was a revelation. Rut tor them and some of the other small teams, the 
biggest challenge is securing the commercial backing to continue 
their campaign into 2012. The Euro crisis and general economic 
malaise in the world is doing nothing to help their cause.

Tender 




FROM RIBS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY AS SUPERYACHT TENDERS TO 
CHASEBOATS, SEMI-CUSTOM DESIGNS AND FULLY BESPOKE MINI- 
SUPERYACHTS, THE HUMBLE TENDER IS FINALLY COMING OF AGE 



Pascoe International has 
worked with Ken Freivokh to 
develop a range specifically 
designed as superyacht 
tenders (below). A Hodgdon 
limousine tender ready for 
launch on the Oceanco 
Seven Seas (left) 



There can be little doubt that the superyacht 

lender has seen something of a revolution in the 
past couple of decades. From the early days of conventional 
RIBs, stock boats and pocket day cruisers pressed into 
service as guest and crew transport, an entire sub-industry 
has spawned to create everything from off-the-shelf 
solutions to fully bespoke designs, all specifically created 
to meet the growing demands of the modern superyacht. 

A tender can be more than a mere guest shuttle; it may 
be an escape for the owner from the formality of the 
mothership to explore remote beaches and waters or just 
spend a night away. It might be used for watersports or 
just to provide the owner and guests with the excitement 
of speed; it may be a sports fishing boat if this is the 
owner's passion, or it may aim to meet MCA rescue boat 
requirements. It may have its own dedicated stowage on 
board the mothership or. as is a growing trend, it may act 
as a chaseboal with the advantage that the restrictions of 
garages and crane capacity are no longer a consideration. 

There are so many variables in superyacht tender design 
that tiie development of the design can be a long process 



that usually starts with a brief from the owner, the captain 
or the shipyard where the yacht is being built. Moreover, 
even 'production' tender builders are fine-tuning their 
designs to superyachts, or are offering semi-custom 
options for that personal touch. 

Pascoe International, for example, has developed a 
range of tenders in the 9 to 10.5 metre range. With styling 
by Ken Freivokh Design, these are not leisure lx>ats 
adapted for use on superyachts, but are definitely designed 
and optimised specifically to serve as dedicated, functional 
and very elegant tenders. 'With a variety of configurations 
to suit different yacht garages these tenders are the result 
of a close collaboration between Patrick Banfield and us,' 
says Ken Freivokh. 'We do the initial design and styling 
and the range is seriously aimed at the large custom yacht 
market. The new limo range is offered on a fully 
customisable basis, lie it to match the mothership or in 
response to preferences and design input by I he appointed 
naval architects or stylists.' 

■ 

British company Cockwells is another example of a 
lender builder that has turned to superyacht designers to 





www.boatinternaIional.com 49 




develop its range, working with Redman Whitclcy Dixon. 
'The simplicity of form is the backbone of all the variants 
and is the perfect canvas to expound the sublime 
craftsmanship of these elegant builders,' explains Mark 
Whitclcy. Once again detailing is the key to a great design. 
'The design process is truly holistic, guiding the project 
through to launch. The journey encapsulates full exterior 
and interior concepts to the minutest detail: 

On its latest project, Cockwells was given a very open 
brief for the tender to Perini's 73 metre Vitruvius project, 
currently under construction. 'The initial brief came from 
the project engineer and the captain, which covered the 
size and weight,' says Dave Cock well. 'They wanted Riva- 
look styling, which the owner had seen and liked, and 
from there it was left to us to come up with the design. We 
worked with Andrew Wolstenholme to develop the design 
and with modifications it was submitted and accepted.' 

US yacht builder Hodgdon has entered the tender 
market with a series of limousine-style tenders designed 
by the experienced Michael Peters. 'This series was 
developed with large-yacht captains giving input, who 
reviewed virtually every detail including equipment, 
fasteners, tools required for servicing,' says Ed Roberts. 
Hodgdon's marketing director. 'The result is a crew that 
finds the handling, servicing and maintenance a source of 
satisfaction not annoyance. 1 

While the emphasis for tenders is mainly on the styling 
there are many technical aspects that have to be 
considered. For example, with many superyacht garages 
the lender has to be low profile and this can mean special 
adaptations such as drop-down consoles have to lie 
incorporated inlo the design. 

While on larger superyachts space is less of an issue, 
stock tenders also have to take inlo consideration 
limitations on the drive units. Water jels are widely used 
on lenders partly because l here are no protrusions below 
the hull, so it keeps the profile low, and partly because of 
ihe smooth delivery of power and the excellent control. 
Jels can also be the best solution if the lender has to 
undertake beach landings. The latest pod drives or stern 
drives do allow for integrated propulsion systems that can 
be adapted to joystick conlrol, but where really high 
performance is required, surface drives can be the best 
solution, although these would tend lo be options only on 
chascboats rather than garaged tenders. 

Many tenders are based on standard production hulls 
because these are tried and tested designs, but apart from 
the performance aspect, an important consideration has to 
be control of spray at the tow and the ability to carry 
varying loads. Spray can be a particular problem with 



RIRs where the round tube tends to encourage water to 
curl over the bow. Williams Tenders spent nine months on 
developing hull designs to ensure both good spray control 
and the ability to operate well when both light and fully 
loaded, when the difference in weight can be considerable. 

Tenders tend to follow three main lines of development: 
the RIB, the classic retro style and the limo tender. Bui 
there are also way-out concepts, many of which remain as 
paper projects, although a few alternative designs have 
become reality. One of these is the Wider 42, the brain- 
child of Tilli Antonelli. This 12.8m boat has sections on 
each side of the hull that can expand outwards to create an 
extensive deck area when at rest. The outer sections also 
add stability so the boat becomes a play area at rest and a 
high-performance sports boat when closed up. This tender 
also carries its own mini-tender in the fonn of a jet ski. 

Then there are the tenders that can operate on sea and 
land which are great for those who want to land on a 
beach or on slipways. The New Zealand-built Sealegs was 
the original version - a RIB with powered wheels, which 
would lower as the boat reached the shallows. The recently 
introduced Iguana has a more sophisticated system where 
two sections of the lower hull open outwards and 
downwards, to become powered caterpillar tracks that can 
handle most terrains. This could be the perfect tender for 
an expedition yacht. For a more complete list of current 
and new tenders, head to www.boatinternational.com. 

Of course, the ultimate accessory is a fully bespoke 
tender, and as yachts have grown in size and sophistication, 
so I he trend toward complete custom tenders has evolved. 
Willi costs running up towards seven figures and beyond, 
these are the true pinnacle of lender design... ^ 




Riva's new Iseo (above) is 
a good example of a stock 
boat that serves well as a 
tender, complete with 
powered hood. More 
unusual concepts include 
the Wider 42 (below), while 
the Dubois-designed Windy 
SR52 Blackbird (top, 
second left) could serve 
as a thrilling chaseboat

BUGSV GEDLEK 



Tender to Palladium 

Palladium is the award-winning superyacht 

designed by Michael Leach Design (MLD), and 

her two tenders are equally striking. These beautiful craft 
were designed by the same team to complement and 
integrate with the mother ship and they are possibly the 
most exciting small boat design in recent years, a fact 
recognised by the tender award at the ShowBoats Design 
Awards. Low, sleek and fully formed, these tenders offer 
the owner and his guests luxury transport to and from 
the shore, with enough performance to give them the 
excitement of speed when required. 

The format is reminiscent of the naval pinnaces of old, 
with the coxswain and his mate at the helm in the fore part 
of the tender and the VIPs in the cabin in the rear. But the 
styling is thoroughly modern and the detailing superb. MLD 
is not releasing the final cost of the tenders, but this level of 
quality does not come cheap. 

The tenders were built by Cougar Marine near 
Southampton, a builder that specialises in high- 
performance design and construction. Cougar worked 
closely with MLD and the crew of Palladium to finalise the 
design. The passenger compartment of this limousine style 
tender is the ultimate in luxury, with two-metre standing 
headroom combined with leather seating and decor. This 



area is fully air-conditioned and has a drinks fridge and 
a top of the range sound system. 

Guests can board forward or aft and enter the cabin via 
sliding doors. In addition to taking guests ashore the bow is 
reinforced for beach landings and they can also be used for 
mothering jet skis. 

The power comes from a pair of Yanmar 260hp diesels 
coupled to Bravo 1 stern drives. A 5kW generator is 
installed to power the air-conditioning and the engine 
compartment has been fully soundproofed. 

The crew have twin helm consoles forward for all-round 
visibility and in the bow there is a semicircular seat with a 
retractable spray hood. Many of the stainless steel fittings 
have been custom designed and machined from solid 
billets for this application. The low profile was dictated by 
the available garage space on board the mother ship and 
the tenders had to be fully integrated with the launch and 
recovery system,' comments Matt Kelly of MLD, who was 
largely responsible for the development of the design. 

With a deadrise of 20 degrees these tenders have superb 
sea-keeping. The top speed is about 45 knots and with 
the passengers located around the centre of gravity the 
tenders operate well both light and loaded, creating a 
well-balanced and responsive tender design. ^

COURTESY OF TENDER SHIPYARD 



Tender to Berkut 

Tender Shipyard in France is headed up 

by designer Philippe Gabon and offers a range 

of superyacht lenders to meet widely varying demands. 
It has built lenders for motoryachts such as Xanadu and 
Ambrosia and its latest tender is one of 7.4 metres for the 
53 metre motor yacht Berkut. 

Cabon produces exciting looking designs finished in 
bright colours, although obviously the colour scheme 
is decided by the purchaser. 'It was the character of our 
tenders that allowed us to get this new contact,' says 
Cabon. The owner of Berkutsawthe tenderwe built 
for Xanadu and told his captain to find the shipyard.' 

This latest tender is fully open and built along the lines 
of a RIB-style tender, but with the 'tube' of the RIB squared 
off in cross-section and made from foam covered in a tough 
anti-abrasion fabric. This 'built in' tendering savesthe need 
to constantly put out and take in portable fenders, and the 
foam tube does not have the 'bounce' of an inflatable tube. 
The square cross-section is also better for spray deflection 
and gives the tender a sharp, modern look. 

This tube surrounds a hull that has a pronounced rising 
chine, creating a shape that is close to being a cathedral 
hull. This shape allows the wide beam of 2.8 metres, which 
in turn creates a great deal of internal space. The hull is 



constructed from advanced composites including PVC foam 
and carbon fibre to help reduce the overall weight. 

There are comfortable seating areas both forward and 
aft of the central, offset helm console. This console is 
finished with the black carbon laminate and the steering 
wheel and engine controls are also made from carbon 
laminate. Extensive navigation and monitoring electronics 
are installed on the dash, 

The engine is under the twin bench seats aft, enclosed in 
a soundproofed box. A single Volvo Penta diesel of 260hp is 
coupled to a Volvo Penta stern drive, to give a top speed of 
45 knots. The fuel tank holds 240 litres and there is a small 
water tank to supply the aft swimming shower. 

The profile has been kept low to fit the garage, but there 
is a forward canopy with side screens that can be erected 
to provide full spray and weather protection to occupants. 

Tender Shipyard offers several variations of tender 
based on this 7.4 metre hull, including limousine 
tenders and one very innovative version that combines 
a limousine-style tender with the requirements for an 
MCA rescue boat. The range of hull sizes from Tender 
Shipyard extends up to 9.6 metres and there are many 
variations that can be incorporated into the basic designs 
to meet individual requirements. ^

COURTESY OF CANTlERE NAUTICO TAGLIAPIETRA 




Tender to Issham at Baher 



The Tagtiapietra boatyard in Venice specialises 

in wood construction, focusing on the building 

of Venice water taxis and the refitting and restoration 
of classic wooden yachts, as well as new construction. 
Located on the island of San Giorgio, minutes away from 
St Mark's Square in Venice, Tagliapietra combines the use 
of traditional hand tools and modern machinery and was 
chosen to carry out the major refit of a classic patrol boat 
for use by Pope Benedict when he visited Venice in 2011. 

The owner of Issham al Bafrerwanted a luxury Venice 
water taxi-style of tender for his yacht but Tagliapietra 
pointed out that this could not accommodate the 1 .8 metre 
headroom required. 'We submitted several designs with 
the required headroom and layout and the final design 
was a reversal of the water taxi layout, with the helm 
amidships and the enclosed cabin forward,' says Andrea 
Tagliapietra, the third generation of master shipwrights 
at the yard. 

There was a requirement to have a throne-like seat 
inside the air-conditioned cabin. The only space where 
this could be accommodated was at the forward end. 'In 
order to give the smooth ride demanded we modified the 
hull form at the bow into a rounded shape', continues 
Tagliapietra. 'The shape was also developed to have a low 



trim angle, whether there is one or 10 passengers 
on board.' 

The cabin has both air-conditioning and heating 
systems, and three electric sunroofs allow it to be opened 
up- Head and shower facilities are provided in a separate 
compartment forward of the helm and there are two 
refrigerators. A matching level of comfort has been 
achieved in the open aft cockpit. 

'Special attention was paid to make boarding easy and 
safe, with retractable handrails and boarding ladders 
on each side. Even the helm station has an adjustable 
platform to accommodate drivers of different heights." 

Construction of the tender is in cold moulded mahogany 
matched to solid mahogany at the sides and decks. The 
i rushed tender has had 20 coats ol Clear varnish applied 
and the trim, anchor plates and name plates are all in 
highly polished, recessed stainless steel. The engines 
are a pair of 190hp Volvo Penta units, coupled to duo-prop 
stern drives to give a speed of 40 knots. 

This Limousine 100 is one of the most beautiful classic 
tenders on the market and the bow has been shaped 
to match that of the mother ship. It retains many of the 
features of the classic Venice water taxi but was developed 
to offer luxury transport for a demanding owner. ^

MIKE JONES; COURTESY OF FEADSMIP; EIDSGAARD DESIGN 



Tender to Tango 

The striking main tender to the 77 metre 

Feadship Tango mirrors the style of the 

mothership perfectly, 

'It has a white hull and silver-grey superstructure, 
and the sloping windows on the main deck of Tango 
are reflected too,' says Peder Eidsgaard, co-founder of 
Eidsgaard Design, the studio that designed Tango and her 
tenders. 'When you see the tender coming to drop someone 
off, you can't hide that these are guests from Tango' 

Through a convertible design, the tender combines 
its sleek profile with practical considerations such as 
comfortable headroom, * Tango has a very low tender garage, 
so you're very limited in terms of height,' says Eidsgaard. 
On a lot of limo tenders the structure lifts up. We wanted to 
minimise the number of moving parts, to minimise potential 
problems. What we came up with was a sliding glass roof, so 
when guests arrive they can walk in comfortably.' 

Built by Compass Tenders in Southampton and managed 
by Eos Tenders and Edmiston, the boat is an example of 
well-thought-out luxury. Two foldaway staircases rather 
than ladders are located in the cockpit, and are angled to 
provide the stability to walk on board without holding on 
to anything. The cockpit, with a helm console inspired by 
classic sports cars, is positioned forward so in heavy seas 



guests can benefit from the smoother ride aft. The indoor 
guest area offers not only a fullA/V system, air-conditioning 
and a fridge, but ergonomics have also been considered. 
Cream fabric sofas seat eight in 'supreme comfort", or the 
compliment can be brought to 12 with threejumpseats. 

' Tango accommodates 12 guests, so with the tender you 
could take everybody to an event in one go. In the beam 
there's an incredible amount of space, given its low profile,' 
says Ben Harrison, partner at Eidsgaard Design. 

But the tender is intended for more than just evening 
jaunts to shore. The client also said he might use it for 
sightseeing trips - that's another reason we have these 
sliding panels,' says Eidsgaard. The crew can stay in the 
cockpit forward, you close the forward door and the back 
end slides open. Everything aft of the cockpit is then the 
guests' private area, and they can go swimming from the 
fold-down swimming platform or whatever they like.' 

In their hide-out up-front the crew are not forgotten. The 
owner was conscious of the man hours it takes to maintain 
a varnished teak deck - no matter how beautiful it is. 

'We painted the deck in dark brown metallic, with lines 
to make it look like teak. You realise immediately it's not 
wood, but it's a really cool finish - far more contemporary,' 
says Eidsgaard. ►

THE SEA DEMANDS PASSION

ONNE VAN DE WAL; COURTESY OF HODGDON VACHTS 



Tender to Seven Seas 



Hodgdon Yachts, the oldest yard in the 

US, was the natural choice for an owner who 
wanted a classic and high-quality custom tender. 

Hodgdon in turn collaborated with the American 
designer Michael Peters, a top performance race boat 
designer with long experience of creating superb hull 
designs. The requirement was to create a limo tender 
for the 86 metre Oceanco Seven Seas. 

'The concept of this tender is quite reminiscent 
of the work my company did on the Chris Craft 28,' 
says Peters, founder of Michael Peters Yacht Design. 
'They're both retro looking, but they're modern - in the 
sense that they're modern boats on modern scales - 
but from a distance they have the flare of a classic boat. 
We called it a limo tender because it has that feeling, a 
very fine, old automobile in character,' he says. 

Indeed, from the exterior the limo tender has the low 
and faintly retro-aesthetic that Peters is well-known for. 
This feeling continues in the fully air-conditioned interior, 
featuring sumptuous cream leather and mahogany. 

'It is unique shapes and a unique aesthetic that 
Michael Peters puts into it,' says Tim Hodgdon, 
president of Hodgdon Yachts, 'it has a beautiful leather 
interior - it feels Like being in a custom Lear jet.' 



But while the tender's looks are classic, its 
technology is decidedly modern. The side windows 
in the superstructure power down to reveal access 
points port and starboard, and the saloon's hardtop 
rises hydraulically to ease boarding and allow greater 
headroom: "The whole structure moves', says Peters. 

Hodgdon prides itself on its expertise in high-tech 
composite construction and used a combination of 
E-glass and carbon to create a lightweight but strong 
structure. The yard's traditional boat-building skills, 
meanwhile, allowed it to fit mahogany inserts into 
the deck and to translate the complex design into a 
smooth-running reality. 

'If you have design butyou don't have quality, you have 
nothing," says Peters. 'It's only if you watch the quality 
that a design will come to life the right way. Hodgdon did 
a beautiful job. It's built like a smaller version of a yacht, 
the quality is the same as on the big boat.* 

The outcome of the project was so well received that 
Hodgdon and Michael Peters have since collaborated 
on the 10.11 metre Sport Tender and the 9.15 metre 
Center Console Tender, which together with 
the Limo Tender design they are offering as a 
portfolio of Hodgdon Custom Tenders.

AS THE ROLE OF A YACHT 
DESIGNER FRAGMENTS INTO 
SPECIALISMS, AN INFLUX OF 
EXPERTS FROM DISCIPLINES 
SUCH AS CAR DESIGN AND 

ARCHITECTURE IS 
CHANGING THE FACE OF 

OUR INDUSTRY. WHAT 
EFFECT ARE THOSE FROM 

NON-NAUTICAL 
BACKGROUNDS HAVING 
ON TODAY'S YACHTS? 

'Could you do me a great personal favour?' 

asked the late Jon Bannenberg in a letter to a New* 
York yachting magazine in 1990. 'When mentioning my 
name, refer to me as what I am: a designer, perhaps a 
nit-picking, irritating one, hut nonetheless, not a stylist. 
That is a title I gracefully concede to Vidal Sassoon.' 

Bannenberg expresses an irritation with the term 
'stylist' that persists to this day in the yachting industry. It 
is easy to see why a designer (responsible for the exterior 
appearance, arrangement and perhaps also interior design 
of a yacht) would baulk at being called a stylist, who is 
responsible for the vessel's exterior appearance only. Or, 
in the stronger words of Bannenberg's missive, someone 
whose business is (he 'flimsy tweaking of a structure'. 




words: Caroline White 



But charges that echo these might have been 
laid against Bannenberg himself in the 1960s, 
when he was at the vanguard of a movement 
that pioneered the profession of yacht 
'designer'. This reduced the naval architect's 
domain to technical aspects and hulls, and left 
the looks and layout of yachts to people like 
him - who often weren't naval architects. 
Indeed, ever since, the roles of those involved in 
yacht design have been fragmenting from naval architect, 
who did everything, to designer who did some things, to 
stylist who does one. 

This growing spectrum of roles has opened yacht 
design to outsiders from a wealth of backgrounds. 

The initial stages of this evolution were undoubtedly 
good for the superyacht industry. Bannenberg, a designer 
who trained as a concert pianist, could design yachts such 
as Carinthia (1971) and Limitless (1997) because the 
perception that you needed a naval architect to design the 
entire yacht had changed. The same could be said of 
architect Norman (Lord) Foster, responsible for some of 
the world's iconic buildings, or Philippe Starck. who's 
designed everything from toothbrushes to houses. 

The queslion is whether specialisation has gone loo far 
- whether the person contracted to create a yacht's exterior 
no longer knows what happens inside it, a disconnect that 
can hamper a yacht's performance, viability or safety. 

It's a problem that could easily have affected the 
famously avant garde project motor yacht A. Based on 
an American military research vessel, legend has it that 
Philippe Starck designed the concept in three hours. 
Martin Francis, technical and naval designer on the 
project, collaborated with Starck to make it buildable. 

He drew this thing with an inverted bow. It had no size, 
no engines, no crew accommodation - it was an image,' 
says Francis. Although not a naval architect, Francis has ►

worked in architecture and engineering for much of his 
career. He decided with Starck on the size, general 
arrangement and power, but also developed a lines plan 
and did all I he calculations. Then he tested it and drove an 
advanced scale model around the Solent. This was before 
going to ;i shipyard. Nobody ever does that stuff normally 
before going to a shipyard,' says Francis. 'I wasn't prepared 
to go off on a tangent in terms of styling, a whim, if it 
turned out it wouldn't perform well or it was dangerous.' 

As it transpired. A performed beautifully, with a fine 
entry and an efficient hull. 

Collaboration of this sort works for other designers 
without naval architecture backgrounds. Bannenberg & 
Rowell designs both interiors and exteriors, but neither 
of its directors - Jon Bannenberg's son Dickie or Simon 
Rowell (a designer who came to yachting from hotel 
design) - is trained in naval architecture. Nevertheless, 
they consider technical aspects from the beginning. 

'We employ a designer who happens to be a qualified 
naval architect. So even if we're talking about conceptual, 
early-day design, it's not pie in the sky,' says Rowell. 

When it comes to sailing yachts, where rig and hull 
are all important, or high performance motor yachts, this 
early integration is even more important. 

Inigo Toledo, president of Barracuda Yacht Design, is a 
naval architect and yacht designer who has worked on 
Spain's America's Cup campaigns. He believes fast sailing 



and motor yachts are still the realm of the naval architect. 

'If you want a boat to do 60 knots you can't have 
someone styling the boat and someone else doing the 
engineering architecture. That doesn't work,' he says. 

'If you want your boat for parlies only, these things don't 
matter. Then you start with the marble and the sw*imming 
pools - fine. But we're (Barracuda) especially good at other 
things. We can do floating apartments, but the guys who 
do floating apartments cannot do what w*e do.' 

And here lies the crux of the problem for stylists - and 
to some extent designers: if a naval architect can do 
what you do and more, why do we need you? 

On a practical level, it is worth noting that designers 
who are not naval architects have been involved in 
successful high-performing yachts. David Summerfield, 
architect and senior partner at Lord Foster's firm Foster + 
Partners, was responsible for the exterior styling of the 
Panthalassa, a well-regarded 56 metre ketch that came 
third in last year's Perini Navi Cup. 'We started on the 
project at the same time as the naval architect, so it was 
completely seamless teamwork,' he says. 

But those from other disciplines also import 
expertise that enriches yacht design. 

'Architects are very keen on 
emphasising the quality of space 
inside the yacht, trying to get as 
much light in as possible, and ^

Clients w ork with us on the livery. The wrapping creates t he 
identity, and in our business, it s about a unique identity 



on Panthalassa we took away walls on the main deck so 
it opened up completely,' Summerfield says. 

'But more generally, we're involved with quite a breadth 
and width of projects, from door handles to skyscrapers, 
so it gives us a comprehensive view of looking at things.' 

That's true of James Claydon and Mike Reeves, co- 
founders of design studio Claydon Reeves. Reeves also 
studied architecture, but both are from automotive 
professional backgrounds, where the term styling is more 
commonly used, although in yachting they eschew it. 
That's because they are well informed about yachts and 
the title suggests they are not. During client presentations 
they use physical 'hydroforms' as well as renderings and 
drawings as additional tools to inform and take the 
process forward. 

'Hydroforms are pure models - a pared back, distilled 
version of what the final boat will be like; says Reeves. 

'It involves a client in the design process, describing to 
them what it could be. Tt's not ground-breaking, it s just 
not one people have used in the yacht industry. For a long 
lime the car industry has been doing things like this.' 

The pair's experience in surfacing cars - the design of 
the wrapping - is also a cut above what many yacht 
designers bring to their work. 'A lot more subtlety that can 
be brought into surfacing, real detailing. The interaction 
of a concave surface with a convex surface,' says Reeves. 

Similarly, Peder Eidsgaard and Ren Harrison, Eidsgaard 



Design's creative directors, have experience in other fields. 

'Peder designs planes as well,' says Harrison, who 
trained as an architect. 'You can't change the body of the 
plane, but clients spend a lot of time working with us on 
creating the livery. The wrapping creates the identity, and 
particularly in our business, it's about a unique identity.' 

Indeed, modern desire for expressing individuality may 
be at the root of the rise of the stylist. Peder Eiclsgaard 
eslimates thai while the interior accounts for 90 per cent of 
a designer's work, and the exterior 10 per cent, most whole 
boat contracts are won on the basis of the exterior design. 

"Some boats express aggression; others will be calm and 
gentle. This is often a reflection of how the owner sees 
themselves, or what they want to portray. 1 says Kidsgaard. 

And why this fixation on expression through looks 
rather than, for example, speed? Eidsgaard believes that 
for motor yachts, besides quality, the aesthetic remains 
the pivotal element setting one apart from another. 

'In all industries technologies are so advanced and so 
accessible that the way to separate products is through 
visual identity. That goes for cars, electronics, like a fridge 
or a microwave - it's only aesthetics that differentiates. 
The same thing has happened in the yachting industry.' 

Perhaps then, since its style has become such an 
essential element of a yacht, the term 'stylist' will one day 
lose its negative connotations. Especially if its purveyors 
continue to show there is substance beneath it. A

ATTES5A IV 



DENNIS WASHINGTON LOVES REBUILDING YACHTS TO 
HIS OWN VISION, BUT AFTER A SHIPYARD FIRE AND A 
HANDS-ON INSPECTION OF THE OLD STRUCTURE, HE 
REALISED ATTESSA A/ WAS HIS BIGGEST CHALLENGE 




People who don't know Dennis Washington 

wonder why he rebuilds yachts instead of 
building new custom ones. It's a question he used to try 
to answer. Now, having finished his fourth massive 
rebuild, he just shrugs off such inquiry You either get it 
or vou don't. 

There isn't a yard on the planet that can build custom 
enough for Washington, or a yard that could function 
with an owner as involved in the build process. Full 
disclosure: I've seen every one of the Attessa rebuilds, 
starting with I he conversion of the 39.6 metre Kong and 
Halvorsen Yecats'm 1991. For Washington, who made his 
mark in heavy industry, a good hull is his version of a 
clean sheet of paper; on it he builds his dream along the 
principles of what he perceives as the best of Dutch boat 
building- Large mechanical objects and companies in 
need of a turnaround are his particular talent. 

Redoing yachts is Washington's passion, pleasure and 
relaxation. It gets his creativity flowing and provides him 
with the ultimate group activity. His projects combine the 
talents of Seattle-based designer Glade Johnson. 
Washington's wife Phyllis, and his captain Ted McCumber. 
who joined the band as captain of the first Attessa, when 



the yacht was just a few weeks old. McCumber has been 
managing the projects since. In Washington's portfolio 
are companies that work with stainless steel and 
hydraulics, and since that first boat he's purchased ship 
repair facilities and with it, highly skilled marine 
tradespeople. 

Yacht broker Merle Wood, who has represented 
Washington on a number of purchases, set the current 
rebuild in motion in the spring of 2007, by telling him that 
Chang Yung-fa, chairman of the Taiwanese Evergreen 
Group was ready to sell his 91 metre yacht Evergreen. 
Chang had the yacht designed by Diana and built at a 
commercial yard in Japan. It was a conservative yacht for 
a different type of cruising and culture, but Wood saw it 
had something in common with all the previous Attesscts 
- good bones and a challenge. 

I knew chairman Chang from shipping (one of 
Washington's companies launches a new container ship 
every 45 days) and I knew the boat was as Dutch as could 
be,' says Washington. 'They called it a Japanese-built 
Feadship. I flew over with Glade to have a look. Once we 
decided it would work, the negotiations took about half 
an hour.' 



About one million 
man-hours were required 
for the entire rebuild. The 
wheelhouse (above and 
below) features ballistic 
glass, much of it retained 
from the original yacht. The 
aft saloon (right) on the 
multi-purpose guest deck, 
is followed by an alfresco 
dining space further aft

ATTESSA IV 



'My job was to envision spaces and create architecture to suit the size of the yacht, 
says Johnson. W e never had a spec and no concepts were value engineered. 






A month later Evergreen steamed into Vancouver 
via Hawaii. 

Vancouver Shipyards - where Washington companies 
repair tugs, ferries and cruise ships, has a corner devoted 
to Washington Yachting Group. It was here thai a 30 x 90 
melre floating shipyard was constructed on a barge, while 
engineering drawings were being made for Evergreen's 
revival. The two-slorey barge, complete with offices. 



machine shops and tool storage, would support much of 
the work being done while the yacht was alongside. 
Diana was retained to survey the hull and condition of 
the systems against the original documentation, while 
Greg Marshall was hired as the naval architect for the new 
decks and superstructure. 

One September morning McCumber awoke early as 
usual and padded inlo the kitchen for a cup of coffee;

ATTES5A IV 



The concept was ambitious: new bow, new stern, new foredeck tender garage, new 
spa, new superstructure shape, all new helipad, and totally new interior layout 

from thai vantage poinl he saw smoke rising from ihe 
direction of the shipyard. By I he time he got out the door 
and down the hill, some Washington employees had 
already discovered (he fire was coming from the barge 
and were fighting it with hoses. 

'The two boats (yacht and barge) were firmly lashed 
together stern-to-stern and I could see the crew fighting 
the fire from Evergreen's aft deck,' recalls McCumber. 
Our first priority was to get the yacht away from the quay. 
The boss's tug arrived as we cut the lines to the barge. 
The lug pulled Evergreen 'away from the burning platform 
with the crew still pouring water on the blaze. On the 
other side of the port. Washington had seen the smoke 
and roared over in his tender to investigate. He and the 
tug captain directed traffic, keeping Evergreen upwind of 
the flames while the yacht's crew and shipyard fire team 
battled the blaze for half an hour until fire trucks arrived. 

Fortunately no one was injured, but the barge with 
tools and shop equipment was a total loss. 'The next day 
we started bringing in work trailers and scaffolding to 
erect a work zone next to the yacht,' McCumber says. 

Step one, dismantling the existing yacht, took nine 
months. Giant waste containers were filled 200 times. In 
the course of the demolition, they discovered that as well 
as featuring weapons (rocket launchers and machine 
guns), the yacht had been made bullet proof. Its steel hull 
and superstructure were backed with Keviar and the 
windows were ballistic glass. 




76 www.boatinternational.com 



'We left it in and where we replaced glass, it's ballistic 
as well, 1 says McCumber. You never know.' 

Washington's concept was ambitious: new* bow, new 
stern, new foredeck tender garage, new spa. new 
superstructure shape, all new helipad, and totally new 
interior layout, including crew areas. The yacht originally 
had a large karaoke bar, 15 owner and guest cabins and 
loom for 21 crew in rather packed conditions. While the 
main deck and above were gutted to the shell. McCumber 
planned to perform only maintenance on the engines and 
leave the engine room intact, but Washington found a 
decade of use had taken its toil. In addition to overhauling 
the mains and generators to zero hours, virtually every 
bolt and wire was replaced, engines re-bedded, fuel 
tanks moved, flume tanks removed and the space 
stripped, soundproofed and painted. The boat was 
formerly ABS classed but is now Lloyd's and MCA. 

'The boat was similar to SOLAS class before,' says 
McCumber. 'so the only big change was adding the Hi- 
Fog fire system.' That and reconfiguring the crew areas, 
extending and widening the bow section, adding the 
folding mast, a forward tender garage with gull-wing 
doors that can be operated in a full gale, bulwarks that 
slide down and aft simultaneously to allow the large 
tenders - an 11.5 metre Novurania Chase and a 10 metre 
Riva - to be launched over the side, and the huge 
aluminium stern door that disappears completely from 
view down and under the aft deck sole. 




On the guest deck, side 
walls pinch in to create 
sheltered spaces (above). 
The stairs (top right) spiral 
through five decks, and are 
divided by a fore and aft 
passageway, making a 
landing and foyer at each 
deck. The forward dining 
saloon (bottom right) on 
the guest deck is a cosy 
spot - with storage 
cunningly concealed 
behind hinged bookshelves

ATTES5A IV 








'It wasn't required to be a watertight door because the 
next door and bulkhead to the interior is watertight, but 
we made it that way. I don't like seeing open doors 
sticking up in the air,' says Washington. 

Washington, as noted, liked the yacht's size and overall 
structure, but thought it looked entirely too commercial, 
like a cruise ship. The puzzle he worked on was how to 
keep such a large vessel intimate, both inside and out. To 
control the vastness of the space, he envisioned the yacht 
having a waist at the area of the central ventilation and 
exhaust trunks amidships, and Hares to widen the side 
decks fore and aft. 

'Working with Dennis is an exchange of ideas. He gives 
direction, we do concepts, he reacts,' says Johnson. 
Johnson first makes sketches of the spaces by hand to 
capture his client's vision, then has them rendered in 30 
using the Rhino modelling software. Dennis really 
pushed me on this one. He didn't want a particular style: 
however. I knew that Phyllis Washington, who is an 
antiques dealer (as well us a professional interior designer), 
would be putting a lot of distinctive pieces on board, so 
my job was to envision the spaces and create architecture 



to suit the size of the yacht. We never had a spec and 
none of our concepts were value engineered.' Once the 
space planning and architecture were approved, the 3D 
Rhino models went lo Washington Yachting Group, 
where a team of 10 specialist engineers checked 
calculations before turning the work into shop drawings. 

Indeed, the space is a vast canvas with 2,322.5 square 
metres of interior, including 1,672.25 square metres in 
owner and guest areas. From day one, the yacht was 
going to have a grand entrance area and slunning centra! 
circulation. The stairs, spiralling through five decks, are 
split into pairs of semi-circles divided by a fore and aft 
passageway, making a landing and foyer at each deck. 
The forward bulkhead of the stair column is a 14 metre- 
high wall of gold waves applied using a patented process 
that applies cold sprayable metal to almost any surface. 
These panels shimmer above a stunning sole and stairs of 
white F5otticino marble with Verde Rnmeggiato border 
and diamond-shaped insets, and stair rails in polished 
stainless steel with gold detailing. Each of these landings 
and lobbies is uniquely decorated. 

The show-stopper, however, is on the deck above

main, called the guest deck, where this lobby becomes an 
athwartships passage, as well as offering access to the 
walk-around side decks and side terraces. If the view 
itself, through the floor-to-ceiling windows and doors 
port and starboard, isn't arresting enough, this lobby 
features three Botero sculptures. 

The side terraces incorporate what Washington calls 
'flare-outs', a series of graceful curves on each deck to 
eliminate the slab-sidedness of the original profile and 
remedy the straight deck sightlines. On the guest deck, 
the flare is amidships, on the bridge deck there are flare- 
outs forward, adjacent to the wheelhouse and aft for the 
owner's private deck exterior seating. The sweeping 
shapes increase the beam from 13.1 metres at vvaterline to 
a maximum of 16.1 metres aloft and create drama from 
any angle as well as useful space. At the foyer on the 
guest deck, the side walls pinch in at the area of the 
flares, creating sheltered space for chaises on either side. 

There are tour large, eieganily ileeoraiee! guesi suiles 
on this level and with the dining room/library forward 
and a saloon aft, followed by an alfresco dining space and 
sun pads, it is a deck with enough varied spaces and 
activities for an entire day. The forward dining saloon is 
worthy of particular note, as it is one of the cosiest spots 
aboard. Originally, the room in this position had a 
window overlooking the foredeck. but since Attessa IV 



would feature a garage here for the 6.7 metre crew tender, 
jet skis and kayaks, this window was enclosed with 
storage concealed behind hinged bookshelves. The room 
is reconfigured as an octagon with the dining table at its 
centre under the largest dome Johnson could create out of 
the tween-deck space. So large is the room, I hat beyond 
a huge round dining table surrounded by Albert Pinto 
chairs, there remains room for tables and reading areas 
with overstuffed chairs next to the windows. The room 
has as its secondary focus a 19th-century English fireplace 
with bronze detailing. As with all the fireplaces aboard 
Attessa IV the flames are a hologram. 

The master suite is one deck above. Here the stair 
column on porl is the backdrop for Washington's desk, 
which is adjacent to large windows. There are entrances 
porl and starboard to the master stateroom, which is an 
homage to the glamour of Hollywood in the 1930s. 

'My husband loves classic movies so I made this match 
my idea of what Jean Harlow's bedroom would have been 
like, with a while-on-white shimmery silk theme, Lalique 
mirrors, crystal Toro sconces and a gilded headboard.' 
says Phyllis Washington. The fireplace is an ultra romantic 
19th-century English piece with statuary marble. A large 
bath and dressing area separates the stateroom from its 
sitting room, which features the contrast of sapcle joinery 
and leather chairs and another fireplace, this one a 19th-

Originally, the deck above was going to be a sundeck,

a charity fundraiser. It is a famous piece, more than 2.2 
metres tall, and was pari of a Chihuly exhibition in Venice 
in 1996. As i( was hung near a fishmonger's shop, it 
became known as Mercctio del Pesce. Searching for a way 
to incorporate the piece in Attessa IV, Washington and 
Johnson hit upon the idea of enclosing the sundeck with 
a composite superstructure and bumping up the centre 
with a dome five metres above floor level. The space and 



the piece seem made for each other and in fact this multi- 
function room, called the Chihuly Lounge, is one of 
Washington's favourile spaces in the yacht. 

Another favourite is l he spa on the lower deck, where 
numerous treatment rooms and a sauna lead to a gym and 
out onto the swim platform. Just forward of the spa are 
two more guest suites with king-size beds, and a pair of 
twin cabins Phyllis decorated for her grandchildren. And 
then there is the main deck cinema with its 3D capability 
and lighthearted adjacent lounge and bar. 

'The boat definitely evolved as it went along, and became 



much more sophisticated in its complexity. I know 
how every inch of this boat is built,' says 
Washington, as if to sum it up. 'It's really custom.*

FALCON 



The i nterior designer had to consider the fishing aspect, 
and that normal occupancy would be predominantly male 




88 www.boatinternational.com 





Not so long ago, an old sailing colleague 

commented that it must be difficult not to run out 

of superlatives when describing modern yachts, bearing 
in mind the incredible standards of decor, fit and finish 
in even the most average of vessels. Hut maybe it's not 
so much a matter of running out of superlatives, as their 
application. Such is certainly the case with Trinity 
Yachts' splendid new 50 metre motor yacht Falcon, in its 
series of 'under 500 GT constructions. 

Its appearance is graceful but eminently seaworthy - 
terms increasingly synonymous with Trinity products over 
the years. Seaworthiness is a given, considering the yard's 
extensive experience in the production of yachts and fast 
military vessels; practicality of operation is built in. 

'Although we built this order from scratch, it was 
based upon our proven in-house naval architecture and 
hull design, to which we made a few changes according 
to owner requirements,' says Billy Smith, vice president 
of Trinity Yachts. 'For example, we relocated bulkheads, 
thus Falcon has a six-guest-cabin layout, some with 
Pullman berths. The owner is a keen fisherman and 
among his friends he can count on several like-minded 
guys - hence the extra accommodation. Falcon is just a 
fantastic yacht to take on fishing expeditions. Of course,' 
he adds quickly, 'we're not talking sport-fishing here. In 
his case, the owner simply enjoys quiet anchorages, the 
company of friends and the ability to fish from an array 
of centre-console fishing boats during the day.' 

With friends and fishing as a baseline, it's easy to 
imagine that the decor in general would be masculine. In 
fact, it's the visible lack of feminine touches that accentuate 
the masculinity - remarkable when considering that it 
was a woman who interpreted the interior. 

The designer, Karen Lynn Poulos, from Fort 
Lauderdale, Florida, established Karen Lynn Interiors 10 
years ago. 'I've been around yachts and boats all my life,' 
says Poulos, and from an early age discovered an artistic 
ability I was determined lo develop into a career. 

I first became involved with Falcon back in 2008, 
when she was still in the initial stages.' she continues. 
This was a real clean-sheel-of-paper deal and required 
a fair amount of background study to achieve the kind 
of ambiance best suited lo the owner's accustomed 
lifestyle. There was also the fishing aspect to lie 
considered and the likelihood that normal occupancy 
would be predominantly male. 

In general,' Poulos explains, I he layout is fairly 
conventional, with the exception of the six guest cabins 
on the lower deck. Here on the main deck I kept it 
simple and used the sumptuousness of the materials to 
define a welcoming ambiance in the saloon and dining 
area, the two being separated by a slim island containing 
a concealed television.' W'e move starboard and forward 






www.boatinternational.com 89 






through an elegant foyer, which has a stairway accessing 
all decks, a dayheacl and the entrance to the owner's 
suite. This is beautifully appointed hut restrained. Poulos 
points to the bathroom, 'All bathroom floors, including 
this one, are a mixture of different light emperador 
marble, accented by defining designs using different 
colours of mother-of-pearl.' 

Rack at the foyer, a small door alongside the stairway 
leads to the impressive main galley- At more than seven 
metres long, it runs from the ship's cenlerline lo extreme 
outboard. The chef's cabin is conveniently adjacent lo 
the galley (great for midnight snacks), back-to-back with 
the owner's suite, but has no windows. 




The bridge (above 
left), with its businesslike 
chair and console, offers 
good visibility through large 
windows. The aft bridge 
deck alfresco dining area 
can cater for up to 14 
guests, while the upper 
saloon is designed around 
conversation areas while 
maintaining a masculine 
feel in its decor 



90 www.boatintGrnational.com 



FALCON 



The owner simply enjoys quiet anchorages, 
the company of friends and the ability to iish 
from centre-console fishing boats during the day. 





A potential drawback for the chef is thai the crew 
must trail through the galley to get to their quarters. The 
quarters themselves are bright, spacious and comfortable, 
probably made more so because the engineers have 
their own cabins elsewhere, aft of the engine room. 

Ascending the foyer stairs leads to a small service area 
with a davhead, the audio/visual systems racks, and doors 
leading to the main bridge, the captain's cabin and a 
small-ish but delightful VIP suite with fantastic sea views. 

The main bridge is a large space with forward-hinged 
side deck doors and well-sized windows that ensure 
plenty of light and great visibility. The interior is charcoal 
and shades of gray, offset by a varnished teak and holly 



deck. The centre console houses five interactive 
information screens, flanked by flat spaces for charts and 
other paraphernalia. There are no macho 'flight-deck' 
pilot seats, just a centrally mounted, nonadjustable chair 
for a watch-keeper. As for the captain's persona! 
accommodation, although his cabin is correctly positioned 
directly behind the bridge, access is instead via the foyer 
at the top of the adjacent stairway. Most surprisingly, as 
with the chef's, this cabin has no natural light. 

Poulos opens the aft-facing door to the upper saloon, 
another example of masterly understatement, i tried to 
create intimate conversation areas.' she says. 'And 
although the setting is opulent. I feel I've managed to

C I tried to create intimate conversation areas, and 
although the setting is opulent. I feel I've managed

Jr. X';;(i:'i« 




stabilise it with masculine overtones.' This achievement 
is visible throughout the entire yacht and she can be 
justifiably proud of the owner's expressed satisfaction. 

One practicality that affected all aspects of 
construction was Falcon's intended cruising grounds. 
From the gel-go.' Smith says, 'we knew that the ship 
would sometimes be operating in fairly remote areas 
and in exceptionally high air and seawatcr temperatures. 
Tests showed that all seawater-cooled machinery 
would suffer, so oversized cooling systems were custom 
designed and built to lake care of everything from 
main engines to generators to air conditioning. Both 
engine room and galley ventilation systems were 



redesigned and, in line with all I h is. we were required 
to get noise levels down to an absolute minimum, 
hence the underwater exhausts.' 

It is refreshing to discover that despite today's fashionable 
use of full-beam owners' accommodations al main deck 
level, there are forward access stairways both port and 
starboard. These lead to the bridge side-deck doors and a 
semi-Portuguese bridge, opening out into a substantial 
area above the owner's cabin with a central stairwav 
forward and down to the bow well-deck. Smith says this 
feature is because of the yacht's operation in remote areas. 

'We discussed the possibility of any kind of emergency 
or otherwise, where a helicopter might be required.' he

a welcoming ambiance.

says. 'So wt beefed up ihe owner's cabin lop and made it 
large enough for a touch -and-go operation. In fad, it's 
perfectly safe for a small helicopter to remain overnight 
while at anchor. Making space aft for this kind of 
operation is disruptive for guests and crew alike, hence 
the decision to locate forward and out of everyone's wav.' 

Another feature that has its roots in the probability of 
remote operation is the interesting anomaly in the en 
suites. Amid all the marble, mother-of-pearl inlay and gold- 
plated fixtures, bathroom furniture is plain white and 
simple in operation and function. It made sense to install 
Headhunter systems and keep plumbing as reliable and 
maintenance-free as possible,' Smith explains. 

The engine room is a panorama of white paint and 
polished stainless steel that forms the background to well- 
planned controls and a typically workmanlike Trinity 
layout. 'She's semi-displacement and all-aluminium, 
which means she's relatively light. Plus, we have big MTU 
16V 4000 Series engines, each developing 3.650 
horsepower, which with our hydrodynamics means she 
has a 25-knot capability, with a cruising speed of 22.' 
explains Smith. Naturally fuel consumption for that 
performance is high. but. in normal operation and at 12 
knots cruise, she just sips fuel for a range of over 4,000 
nautical miles. The comfort is in knowing that the extra 
turn of speed is always available.' 

Falcon's captain, Jens Ejlersen, is a Dane with 30 years' 
professional blue-water experience. He cut his teeth on 
the square-rigger Danmark and served in the Danish 
Navy, 'Plus a Variety of merchant and passenger ships 
working as chief officer or relief captain,' he says. 'With 
Falcon it's nice to have a command of my own. 

'I have a good crew, who've been working hard to get 
everything squared-away for an upcoming trip. 
We have 5.000 miles to do,' he says, smiling, 'so 
we can find out how this falcon really flies!'

There was quite a buzz during the Monaco 
Yacht Show around the first 53.7 metre steel and 

aluminium motor yacht from Palumbo Shipyards, the 
exclusive builder and dealer for Columbus Yacht. To 
understand how the Palumbo family entered the 
business, we must return to 1967, when Salvatore 
Palumbo founded a small carpentry and welding 
business in Naples that carried out work on every type 
of ship. 

In the 1980s, Palumbo recognised an opening, and 
built up a profitable business maintaining and refitting 
ships and ferries. The company's current CF.O is Antonio 



100 www.boatinternational.com 




Palumbo, who continues, with three generations of (he 
family, to develop il in the repair, construction, refit and 
conversion sector of shipping. Palumbo carries out work 
on bulk carriers, super tankers, ferries and cruise ships 
at its shipyards in Naples and Messina. As recently as 
2010 the Palumbo Group acquired Malta Dry Docks, 
which will allow the group to expand its maintenance 
business to ships of up to 300,000 tonnes, on transit 
from the Hast to the Mediterranean. Palumbo has also 
recently developed a separate site nearby, which now 
features a refit centre entirely dedicated to superyachls 
- Palumbo Malta Superyachls - and is fully operational. 



This new superyacht division is headed by Giuseppe 
Palumbo, general manager of the Naples shipyard and of 
Palumbo Malta Superyachls. Il was his passion for 
yachting that led the company to enter the superyacht 
industry. He aims to bring the ethos behind Palumbo's 
other arms to this sector, delivering all-Italian built 
superyachls that arc both moderately priced and good 
value for money. 

With the expertise of 250 direct yard workers at hand 
to work with steel and aluminium, plus a number of 
subcontractors, the company has set its sights high. Two 
yachts were started in tandem, of which Prima is the first 



www.boatinternational.com 101 




102 www.boatinternational.com 





The bridge deck (above) has a 
huge saloon aft, complete with 
bar, for entertaining or watching 
a film on the drop-down screen. 
The large aft deck is perfect for 
a long alfresco lunch with the 
family while at anchor. For the 
outdoor types the sun deck 
(left, and top right) comes 
complete with a spa pool, 
sunbeds and a shaded seating 
area under the main arch 



to be shown (the second is a 60 metre). Columbus Yac ht 
has high expectations with a variety of yachts on the 
drawing board, including classic, explorer and sport 
hybrid lines. Indeed, it recently signed a contract for a 40 
metre hybrid long-range sport yacht. 

'Prima is our first ambitious goal in the superyacht 
business.' says Giuseppe Palumbo. 'It was achieved 
thanks to great professionalism and to high management 
skills, and represents a boost for our new ambitious 
projects for the future.' 

The company has a strong technical knowledge of 
commercial vessels and thanks to a successful 



collaboration with the naval architect Sergio Cutolo at 
Hydro Tec, it has found a partner to support its naval 
architecture, design and engineering. Just as importantly, 
it has found a partner that can produce the finesse 
superyacht owners demand. 

The project management of Prima was carried out by 
Giuseppe Palumbo himself and his team. The interior 
was designed by Tominaso Spadolini. 

The overall look of Prima is deliberately modern with 

j 

elliptical windows on the upper deck, carried forward to 
wraparound bridge windows, giving her a sporty look 
up top. while more classical squared off windows are 
used for the main deck. Both allow substantial amounts 
of light into the interior. She eschews a more curvaceous 
profile for the upper and fiybridge decks, but in doing 
so she gains increased deck space as well as more 
shaded areas. 

You can guess from the appearance of the yacht s 
stern that the underwater profile has been designed with 
a round bilge hull. But she also shows off a generous 
deadrise angle along the full length of the hull, except in 
the aft area, where the sections are flatter, to drive the 
flow of water over the propellers to the stern. 

The hull form I have designed for Prima is in line 
with our design philosophy,' says Sergio Cutolo. 'It is 
always to take into account all the aspects of 
hydrodynamics, which include not only the 
minimisation of the drag, but also the sea-keeping 
aspects, manoeuvrability, stability and deck wetness. A 
spray rail is also fitted in the bow areas to control the 
water flow on the topsides and to keep the deck dry in 
all conditions.' 

With a beam spanning 10.2 metres. Prima has plenty 
of capacity in the engine room for piping and technical 
equipment. Sea trials revealed that her two MTU 16V 
4000 M 60 engines take the maximum speed to IS knots, 
bui the yacht is most comfortable at a cruising speed of 
16 knots, at which speed she has a range of 4,000 
nautical miles. Drop down to 12 knots and she will take

you another 1,000 nautical miles, with the capacity to 
carry 118,600 litres of fuel. A separate fuelling system is 
found in the garage area for the two tenders. The 
systems on board include a Hamann waste treatment 
system, Condaria fan coil air-condilioning and Autronica 
water mist fire extinguishing. She has two sets of Naiad 
Zero Speed Stabilisers, two Caterpillar C9 175kW 
generators and an 86kW emergency generator. 

There is no shortage of space for storage, with all the 
tankage areas easy to gel to and separate areas for guest 
suitcases, food siores and extra refrigeration on the tank 
deck accessible from the crew area. A door off the garage 
leads to a Castokli Jet Tender 21, with room for a similar 
tender in the garage - both have their own cranes for 
side access launching. A Zodiac RIRO 450 Rescue Boat 
sits on the bow, well protected by high bulwarks. 

Classed to ARS * Al, MCA, LY2, she has also been 



awarded R1NA Green Star Plus Platinum status for low 
exhaust emissions. The adequate crew quarters for 12 or 
13 in six double cabins, plus the crew mess, are forward 
on the lower deck, with the captain's cabin on the bridge 
deck aft of the bridge area. 

Spadolini was tasked with designing the interior of 
Prima. The brief specified contemporary design with a 
slant towards the classical, which would suit many 
owners, father than a highly individual style. Prima is 
laid out over three decks, with the owner's suite forward 
on the main deck, four identically decorated guest 
cabins on the lower deck — two with en suite shower 
rooms and two with spa tubs - but goes off piste with a 
VIP cabin on (he bridge deck. 

This could be perfect if two families chartered the yacht 
- with the adults up lop they can turn the bedroom and 
bridge deck saloon into a private suite. Or, use the area as

galley there is a dumbwaiter 
available to carry food between 
the decks (far left)

a family cinema room with its drop down screen and liar. 

Spadoiini worked with Giuseppe Palumbo and his 
team to steer the design away from softening 
accoutrements such as curtains and rugs. He aimed 
instead for a clean, open look with Venetian blinds and 
walnut planked floors inset with squares of Calacatta 
Oro marble (from Carrara. Italy) and an overall modern 
feel. The colour palette is earthy, with rich browns and 
caramels highlighted with cream, giving the interior a 
simple, modern look that still feels warm and luxurious- 
There are some interesting touches on board: the 
owner's suite has a small, well thought-out balcony 
between the office and the bedroom. Instead of a 
complicated drop-down balcony requiring crew to 
assemble, here you have doors (hat open at the touch of 
a bullon to reveal a place to lake coffee or read a book.

opened it up by adding a circular glass atrium on the 
sundeck, which floods ihe stairwell with light. 

With large internal and exterior volumes { Prima is 838 
gross tonnes) ihere is plenty of space for alfresco dining, 
sun-worshipping and relaxation. The sun deck, which is 
over 20 metres long, has a large family area for fun at any 
lime of the day. A bar area, shaded dining space and a 
spa pool surrounded with large sunpads, are welcoming. 





The generous master suite 
offers a good-sized bedroom, 
an office, his and hers 
bathrooms and a balcony 
overlooking the ocean 



Meals can be delivered to this deck easilv via a crew 
staircase and dumbwaiter adjacent to the bar. 

Prima is an ambitious project, especially for a first yacht. 
There are a few details dial could be belter, such as pans 
of the exterior paintwork and ihe finishing of a couple of 
interior elements, but this is to expected in a first build and 
will no doubl be improved in future superyachl projects. 

She will make a great charier vessel, with voluminous 
areas, an uncomplicated interior wilh a colour palelle thai 
will nol offend, and a light, brighi feel. Prima is definitely 
good value at €24,500.000. As we go to press Fraser Yachts, 
which represents Prima, confirms that two more yachts are 
under construction al the Palumbo Shipyards: a 60 
metre displacement yacht based on the Prinrj 
plalform ami a Columbus Sporl Hybrid 130.

The calm waterways, secluded anchorages and deserted beaches of the Whitsundays provide the perfect 
conditions to set sail. So it's no surprise that Hamilton Island is home to Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, Australia's 

largest offshore yachting regatta. With an iconic Yacht Club overlooking a secure 243-berth marina, nestled 
amongst the 74 islands of the Whitsundays, Hamilton Island really is the best kept secret in the world of yachting.

THE DARWIN 86 FROM CANTIERE DELLE 
MARCHE MAY BE SMALL IN OVERALL 
LENGTH, BUT SHE'S ALSO A SERIOUS 
LONG-DISTANCE EXPLORER, AND A BOAT 
PUNCHING WELL ABOVE HER WEIGHT 



The expression 'pocket superyacht' gets 

bandied around quile a lot in this industry. Anything, 
it seems, that is less than 30 metres LOA and has a 
decent amount of accommodation is branded a pocket 
superyacht, whether it deserves that moniker or not. 
Some do. but many do not. 

Many of the pocket superyachts' we see are little more 
than sub 30-metre accommodation barges, and the ability 
to sleep 14 people does not necessarily make them 
superyachts. To qualify as a proper mini-superyacht, a boat 
requires more than just a lot of space on board. It needs the 
attention to detail and build quality we expect to see in 30 
metre-plus boats; it needs to have the kind of systems and 
redundancy we expect from much bigger vessels; and it 
needs proper crew quarters. Only then can a smallish boat 
be correctly described as a pocket superyacht. 

Which brings us to the Darwin 86 from Cantiere delle 
Marche in Ancona. This is a yacht that appeared on the 
European boat show circuit at the latter end of 2011, and 
it is pitched very much as a pocket superyacht. But is it 
really, or is it just an 86-footer with a lol of space? 

Twentv-six metres is onlv a little over ihe maximum 
length for an owner-skipper, and quite a way short of what 
most consider superyacht territory. At about €6 million, i( 
also costs a lot less than what most of us would expect to 
pay for a superyacht. Rut after a day on board, including a 
short sea-trial, it is clear that the Darwin 86 is indeed one 
of that rare breed: the true pocket superyacht. 

The first striking aspect of the Darwin 86 is the styling. 
Designed as an explorer yacht, it may only be 26 metres 
LOA, but with four decks it is tall. The styling will find 
few fans among enthusiasts of sleek Italian sports- 
cruisers, but this isn't a boat aimed at the fast and the

furious. It is for those who prefer a more sedate pace, 
and want to cover long distances in comfort. The Darwin 
has the purposeful lines and utilitarian appeal we've 
come to expect from explorer yachts. It may not be 
beautiful, but it has a functional elegance that will 
definitely appeal to those in search of a 'little ship'. 

The little ship feel continues when you step on board. 
Caniiere delle Marche is better known for its commercial 
vessels than its recreational boats, and this background 
is apparent as you walk around. The solidity of the build 
and the engineering solutions achieved leave you in no 
doubt that this boat will last. And although it was built 
by a yard more used to producing 100 metre-plus tankers 
and passenger ships, the fit and finish of the Darwin 86 
is exceptional. 

As a semi-custom build, the Darwin 86 has a standard 
layout that can be adapted. This one, Vitadimare 3- 
sticks pretty closely to the standard arrangement, with a 
few changes to accommodate the owner's wishes. On 



the main deck is the saloon, dining area, a bar and the 
dayhead, and stairs down to the accommodation deck 
forward on the starboard side. At the stern, a generous 
cockpit contains a dining table seating 10. 

The saloon area is a decent size and the decor neutral 
and understated. You don't expect an explorer yacht to be 
dripping with bling, but even so the interior is very low- 
key. There's a reason: the owner is passionate about two 
things - wine, and art. There are hundreds of wine glasses 
and 15 fridges on board Vitadimare 3* while the neutral 
colour-scheme is designed to show off his collection of 
artworks. And there is art everywhere, including a 
limited-edition Dali print in one crew cabin and a limited- 
edition Picasso print in the other crew cabin. That's not 
something you see every day. 

Interestingly, the designer Sergio Cutolo chose to 
devote the forward part of the main deck to the crew. 
Forward of the bar and dining area is a galley on the 
port side and a crew mess on the starboard side. Forward 
of those are two twin crew cabins with bathrooms and 
separate shower compartments. Having the crew on the 
main deck makes good sense from an operational point 
of view, but it's unusual not to have the owner's or V II' 
cabin at the forward end of the main deck. 

Down on the accommodation deck, things are as you 
expect. There is a full-width owner's suite aft, a central 
lobbv. two twin cabins (with a Pullman berth), and a VIP 
double Forward. In the owners suite, the layout has been 
changed slightly. On the standard boat the bathroom is 
on the starboard side, with wardrobes and a desk on the 
aft bulkhead opposite the bed. But in Vitadimare 3 the 
owner has moved the bathroom to where the wardrobes 
were and created a walk-in wardrobe next to the 
bathroom. This makes the owner's cabin full-width, but 
only slightly longer than the length of the bed. 




The flybridge has plenty of 
space for sunloungers. and 
this version also features a 
flybridge helm console. Aft 
on the main deck is a dining 
table seating 10 (left). The 
engine room (above) is 
superbly installed and 
beautifully engineered. 
Even the paint has been 
beautifully applied, 
following extensive 
research by the yard into the 
different systems available 



www.boatinternational.com II7 



DARWIN 86 




The VIP suite (left), 
is forward on the lower 
deck. The main deck saloon 
(below), with dining area, 
bar and lounge, features 
low-key decor and some of 
the owner's art collection. 
As with other spaces on 
board, the yacht here feels 
considerably larger than her 
length would suggest 



The interior is very low-key. There's a reason: the owner is passionate 
about two things - wine and art. The neutral colour-scheme is designed 
to show off his collection of artworks

ft 




Up a flight of siairs from the conipanionway by I lie 
galley is the bridge deck, where the owner has made 
more changes. The bridge itself remains unchanged from 
the standard boat, but afi where normally an upper 
saloon and television area spans the full width of this 
deck, the owner has specified the captains cabin to be 
placed on the port side, with a much-reduced television 
area on the starboard side. This does cut down on the 
available seating for owner and guests, but giving the 
captain his own cabin next to the bridge makes a lot of 
sense (if you want to keep him). Aft is a large outdoor 
area with a dining table, full barbecue and galley facilities, 
and enough room for the tender and a crane. 

Finally, up on the flybridge, you can specify pretty much 
anything you like. The owner has eschewed the standard 
spa pool for an additional helm position, and the rest of 
this deck is given over to sunpads and lounging areas. 

Sitting on her berth in Sardinia, the Darwin looks 
almost as tall as she is long, suggesting she would roll 
heavily at sea. The weather is flat-calm for her sea-trial, 
so it is unclear what she would be like in heavy seas. But 
best efforts to cross and re-cross the boat's own wash 





have minimal effects on stability. Even putting her into a 
full-power turn only elicits a moderate roll - not enough 
to send any of the ohjets dart crashing to the floor. 

The twin Caterpillar 400hp engines are a good match 
for a boat like this, giving a top speed of about 12 knots 
at l,~50rpm. At this speed it is only using 65 litres of fuel 
per engine per hour, a figure almost halved by dropping 
the revs to l,500rpm and the speed to 11 knots. At this 
comfortable cruising speed the Darwin is very smooth, 
very quiet, and has a range in excess of 4.500 nautical 
miles. This is a genuine long-distance explorer, an 
impression reinforced by a visit to the engine room and 
machinery spaces, where the installation is superb and 
the quality of engineering beyond reproach. Independent 
rudders, and thrusters at the bow and stern, make the 
Darwin easy to manoeuvre in tight situations, which is 
important in a boat weighing 200 tonnes fully loaded. 

These practicalities really set the Darwin apart from 
similar boats of this length. There is an astonishing 
amount of storage on board, more than enough for a 
month at sea without re-provisioning, and features such 
as the refrigerated garbage -storage compartment show 
that a lot of thought has gone into this boat. 

The Darwin 86 is an explorer in more than just name 
and style - it's a proper long-distance yacht. There are 29 
metre and 32 metre versions of the Darwin in the 
pipeline, and from the renderings they look to carry the 
height more easily. Rut for a 26 metre boat, the Darwin 
86 is an extraordinary vessel. Not everyone wants an 
explorer, but for someone who wants a serious go- 
anywhere yacht at a reasonable price, and with all the 
features you need, the Darwin looks hard to 
beat. Is it a proper pocket superyacht? In this 
case the answer is a very definite 'yes'.

COBRA YACHT IS 
WELL-KNOWN FOR 
ITS FABULOUS 
TURKISH GULLET- 
STYLE TIMBER 
YACHTS. INFINITY 
IS THE NEWEST 
AND LARGEST 
EXAMPLE YET 
-AND ONE 
OF THE MOST 
LUXURIOUS 





The traditional shape of the Turkish gullet, 
updated for the 21st century (left). A vast, 
lounging area forward on the main deck 
forward (top) is perfect for enjoying panoramic 
views with a sundowner. The socialising can 
continue on the bridge deck (above), which 
features a bar, lounge area and a spa pool - all 

with magnificent views 



Since 1978 Cobra Yacht has built a 

series of wooden motor-sailers - with the size and 
standards of luxury steadily increasing - based on the 
design of the traditional Turkish gullet, a kind of ketch. 
hijhiity, completed earlier this year for the growing Eastern 
Mediterranean charter market, is the latest and largest of 
these. After eight weeks of charter work she attended the 
Monaco Yacht Show and Les Voiles de St-Tropez, which is 
where I first see her. anchored close to the harbour 
entrance where her distinctive sheer line, peppered with 
freeing ports, stands oul. T am welcomed on board by her 
captain, Galip Karaca. 

Traditionally a gullet's hull form was largely determined 
by the amount of bend that resulted from a rope pulling on 
the growing tree used for the keel. Rut things are done 
much more scientifically at Cobra, with CEO Eren Raki 
taking responsibility for all of the yard's exterior styling and 
interior design work. Injiniiys keel and frames are laminated 
and the hull skin consists of mahogany longitudinal 
planking overlaid with three layers of veneers and two 
layers of epoxy fibre on top. The deck and superstructure 
are constructed of laminated marine plywood.

The various stained wood finishes provide a good balance of 
warmth and light in the main saloon. The area also features a 
table for 12, with a glamorous monochrome colour scheme and 
well thought-out lighting, while the beamy aft deck offers a 

romantic spot for relaxed alfresco dining 



124 www.boatinternational.com 



INFINITY 



We spend a very pleasant clay watching l lie classic fleet 
racing in the Golfc cle St-Tropcz. With our commanding 
view from the bridge deck - where the proximity of the bar 
to the helm position allow*s Captain Karaca to serve drinks 
while maintaining control of the vessel - we can see iconic 
yachts such as Marietle, Altair, Cambria and Mariquita 
sailing slowly around us in the balmy, calm conditions. It is 
not practical for Infinity to sail in these conditions, but I 
wonder how often she does so. 'It depends on the charter 
guests.' Baki tells me. 'Some don't like sailing and some 
love it. This yacht is a luxury sailing yacht not a performance 
sailing yacht, of course, but she sails pretty well, with a top 
speed under sail of around 13 knots; 

The main deck includes two sun-lounging areas, across 
the stern and forward of the superstructure. It is unfortunate 
the lower shrouds create a minor obstruction when walking 
along the side decks but, as Baki explains, 'The mast loads 
are huge and we didn't install the shrouds on the cabin side 
liecause we would need to make big steel reinforcements 
inside the cabin where we w r ould lose a lot of space.' 

The aft deck, where there is a dining table for 12, leads 
into the open plan saloon and dining area, which takes up 
the whole main deck interior. The spacious guest 
accommodation below includes a full-beam owner's cabin 
forward, with his and hers en suites and a marble-lined 
shower. There is a VIP cabin aft and four equal-size guest 
cabins amidships. Headroom is generous throughout, and 
clean, contemporary styling and decor make for an 
impressive sense of space and light in all cabins. 

The joinery is constructed of a particularly straight- 
grained oak, with dark-stained borders giving an effective 
contrast to the lighter panels. There is an abundance of 
Turkish marble in the en suites, including some unusual 
tapered cylindrical basins. The only challenge was to 
install them as they are prelly heavy.' Baki tells me. 

Stairs at the aft end of the saloon lead to the galley, which 
has an access hatch under the aft deck seating area for 
provisioning. Adjacent is the captain's cabin and a control 
lobby thai leads to the spacious engine room. From there it 
is possible to walk right through (he centre of the bilge to the 
bow thruster space and main crew accommodation. 

The snag list - slightly squeaky floorboards and a cover 
for the inside helm that needs work - is impressively small 
for a new build, and as Karaca savs, all will be resolved this 
winter. 'As we use the boat we can understand the problems 
step by step.' he explains. 

James Munn of Fraser Yachts, also on board, had 
previously shown clients around Infinity- 'They have 
chartered all the Cobra boats." he savs. 'Thev sav 
there is nothing more relaxing than a gullet, but 
only this company builds them to this standard.'

WHEN A BOATING ENTHUSIAST WANTED A SMALL, FULLY CUSTOM MOTOR 
YACHT BUILT ON CLASSIC LINES, HE CHOSE THE MULDER FAVORITE 1400 




It is a bit of a conundrum when you have 

a passion for classic yachts - but your family don't 
feel the same way. What is ihere on the niarkel that would 
give the excitement, the feeling of exhilaration and the 
elegance of a yacht, and he the perfect weekend retreat, tor 
ahoul a million euros? 

This was ihe dilemma of yachtsman Klaus Heinemann. 
His goal; to find a weekend boat that has characteristics 
beyond the norm. Rut he really didn't like any of the 
designs on the water, and if he did, there were too many of 
them, loo clubby, too stereotypical. 



1 wanted something that looks classical, while at the 
same lime having all the technology of a modern boat, 1 he 
says. 'The wooden boats like Riva are really day boats, and 
it's fine if you want to use them in the Med, but in Northern 
Kurope they are not very practical. T wanted something 
around 50 feet (15.2 metres) that I could handle myself, and 
it w*as important it had all the creature comforts you would 
find on a bigger boat: a proper shower, a proper bathroom, 
air-conditioning, and so on.' 

In the archives is a boat that looselv resembles an 
American commuter boat and this appealed lo Heinemann. 



128 www.boatinternational.com 



words: Amanda McCracken

Designer Guido de Groot agreed to work on the design, 
adding 21st-century refinements. Vripack was tasked with 
the naval architecture. 'I wanted (he capability to go fast. I 
liked the Volvo TPS system, and T wanted lo be able to 
achieve 30 knots/ Heinemann explains. 

So l he boat was born: a classic' with modern retro 
styling and a longer waterline than conventional boats, 
to let it cut through the water and deliver good 
performance. The layout of the yacht allows for good 
proportions,' says de Groot. 'We have not tried to place 
decks over each other - all areas are placed in line, 
allowing for a sleek design. The height of the aft deck 
gives enough space for an engine room and IPS drive 
under. To create enough width for the layout, the shapes

above the spray-rails are brought out to a maximum, 
before they taper in again at the transom.' 

Benedict us Ills good looks are defined by the gun metal 
grey hull, which emphasises the hard chine hull built by 
Frisian, her swept-back windows in the superstructure, and 
the balance of her high bow streaming back to a low 
curved stern. As we board for a trip around the islands in 
the Ijsselmeer. Heinemann takes me through the concept. 

'I liked the idea that Mulder builds yachts in aluminium, 
not fibreglass. It makes a more sturdy boat. This is a quiet 
boat. Last weekend it was a Force 5 or 6 and the Ijsselmeer 
had a lot of chop, but we were just cutting through. That 
has to do with the hull shape.' 

The interior was drawn by Kitty van der Kamp. It was 
decided to have only one head, accessed from the V-shaped 
master cabin forward. A separate shower in the master 
makes much more sense here. There is a small twin cabin 
to port, but this boat will only be used for overnight stops. 

The small galley is unpretentious but designed with 
everything to hand. Steps lead up from the forward-placed 
cabins to a fabulously light saloon encapsulated in huge 
wraparound windows. 

Under the saloon floor is a wine cellar and storage for a 
fold-up dinghy. It is the only possible place, as the Vovo IPS 
engines are further back in the deepesl part of the V, which 
only leaves room for a bathing plalform. There is one 
design fault on this boat I really can't see working, however: 
in the aft cockpit area lo starboard a cupboard has been 
designed to store the 6hp engine for the tender, but getting 
this to the dinghy would be no easy task. 

Of note are the aft doors, specially manufactured with a 
stainless steel frame by the shipyard; when closed the noise 
levels drop considerably while under way. Steps up to the 
side decks on both sides make it easy to access the huge. 



raised, teak-covered superstructure and up-and-over 
anchoring system. Here you find over-engineered and 
beautifully solid curved stainless rails, which follow the 
line of the superstructure. 

Heinemann explains how he uses the boat: 'I go to the 
Dutch islands - most are nature reserves with huge dunes 
and it takes about five hours to get to them. It is beautiful 
and there are so many marinas. There is a great fish 
restaurant and literally you can dock outside. The Ijssel 
river is beautiful to go up. 

We stop off in a small harbour at Marken, where anyone 
with a yacht bigger than nine metres would start to get 
nervous, but the Volvo IPS system takes all the stress out of 
turning around and docking. 

So there you have it: a boat for all seasons, with a 
custom hull and interior, a look that turns heads and a 
great getaway speed - and she is a lot of fun. For any 
owners looking for an allernative chaseboal or a 
weekender, this sort of pocket custom build can be the 
choice alternative lo an off-the-shelf production 
cruiser. Be sure to look out for Benedictus III 
cruising the Med and the Baltic.

THE CATAMARAN PHAEDO DISCOVERS BRAZILS 
NORTHEASTERN ARCHIPELAGO, FERNANDO DE 
NORONHA, A REMOTE PARADISE WITH FIVE-STAR 
APPEAL TO LURE ANY YACHTING ADVENTURER 








I heard it at the consulate when I picked up my 

visa and when I checked in at the airport on each leg of my 
journey. Nearly the same words, delivered in an almost dreamy half- 
whisper: You're going to Fernando de Noronha? Oh, it is amazing! The 
most beautiful place in Brazil. You will love it.' 

'Have you been? What's it like?' I asked after each expression of 
enthusiasm for this archipelago. On the map it is barely a dot off Brazil's 
north eastern shoulder, miniscule compared lo the country's hulking 
mass on the South American continent. 

Their replies, all versions of the word 'no' expressed with deep longing, 
were as surprising as the accolades. 'No, but one day... It's a Utopia,' said 
the man at the Brazilian consulate as he handed me the visa. 

'It's very hard lo get there.' said ihe woman at ihe Miami Airport ticket 
counter. The irony wasn't lost on me as she handed over a ticket for thai 



exact destination - but she wasn't wrong. Located more than 320 
kilometres off the coast, it would lake three long flights from Miami 
to reach Fernando de Noronha. And for intrepid sailors voyaging in 
South America, the island chain is still 1,300 nautical miles from Rio 
de Janeiro. 

The young woman who checked me in for the flight from Recife 

- one of two cities that serve as a jumping-off point to Fernando - 
simply shook her head and told me. 'It (to go there) would be a dream 

- it's paradise.' 

I was headed to meet the new IS. 3 metre high-performance catamaran 
Pbaeclo. which had just travelled 6,500 kilometres on her maiden voyage 
from the Gunboat shipyard in South Africa. She had stopped in St 
Helena, the island of Napoleon's exile, before continuing on to the 
almost equally remote Fernando de Noronha.

The main island has a working port 
(above), but also glorious, deserted 
beaches (above left). The rural 
landscape means dune buggies are 
the best way to travel (middle), 
unless you're out in the bay (left).

Fernando de Noronha 



f ernando de Noronhas dramatic landscape came 
into view: ragged cliffs sheltering coves ringed with 
empty beaches; rocky islands catching the raging surf 





My trip to Fernando was booked nail-bitingly last minute; day after 
day Gunboat tracked Phaedds progress across the southern Atlantic, 
ensuring all systems were running well and no unforeseen disasters 
would keep her from arriving on time. As Phaedo was sailing in the St 
Bans New Year's Eve Regatta only weeks later (and still had 2,000-pIus 
nautical miles left to get there) any delay meant losing the window for 
this visit and photoshoot. 

Soon Fernando de Noronha's dramatic landscape came into view: 
ragged cliffs sheltering coves ringed with empty beaches; rocky islands 
catching the raging surf; and the main island's most notable pinnacle, 
the towering Morro de Pico, 
standing watch over the harbour. 
F'ven from the plane, it was easy 
to see why a yacht builder would 
want I heir latest creation 
photographed against this 
striking backdrop - and why an 
adventuresome, ocean-crossing 
owner would call at this port, so 
far off the beaten track. 

We were picked up at the 
airport by a road-ready dune 
buggy, the main mode of 
transportation on the 




eponymously named main island (which is by far the largest and the only 
one inhabited of the 21 islands that make up the chain). Cars are allowed 
here, but they are rare. Instead, sailors and well-heeled travellers alike 
hire a low-slung buggy to traverse the roiling roads around the island and 
the dirt paths that lead to practically hidden beaches. 

It seemed perfectly natural to perch on the back seat, like a teenager 
in a convertible, holding on tight and feeling the breeze tangle hair and 
sweep away hours of recycled aeroplane air and red-eye flight 
exhaustion. But the buggies are just part of the adventure here. 

Before coming to Fernando, I'd heard it called 'Brazil's St Bans'. But 
as we drove along the open, dusty roads and pulled into the main 
harbour, I couldn't think of a place more different. There were no well- 
dressed jet setters visiting high-end shops lining the quay; in fact, there 
was no quay to speak of. Just fishing boats tied to a rock wall and a 
dinghy dock for visiting yachts, reached by a walk down a steep hill. 
The beach was pretty, but nothing compared to others I would see on 
the island, and favoured by local children, who passed a football around 
and splashed in the surf. 

Where well-manicured and elegant St Barts gives an impression of 
easy luxury, Fernando's scenery is wild and rustic, its seemingly bare 
bone infrastructure hiding the opulence that lurks just beyond a 
windswept hill or perfect beach. And that's just the way the government 
wants to keep it. Only 90 fortunate souls are allowed to visit Fernando 
de Noronha each day, and there's a daily 'environment preservation tax' 
- higher for divers and visiting yachts - levied to help preserve the 
island's natural beauty. The tax also seems to limit visits from the 
average tourist, as do the pricey hotels and restaurants. 

While Fernando might seem untamed, five-star does exist here. There 
are splendid boutique hotels and gourmet dining establishments tucked 
out of view, one of which set the scene for a wonderful meal off the 
yacht that night. And this is where the comparison started to make 
sense; Fernando is Brazil's St Barts in a way. While it might lack 
shopping (beyond a few bikini shops), you won't see any luxe cars 
overtaking a dune buggy and it's certainly not the place to see and be 
seen, it is the place to escape to for those with the means to do so. 

For yacht owners, it's an out-of-way. desolate port, to discover and 
make their own for a while. Though only a small island, at least five 
days are recommended to experience the adventures the island has to 
offer, as there are quite a lot. They run the gamut from wreck diving to 
horseriding and surfing to simply sitting on a powdery beach, watching 
surfers who flock here in the summer, and drinking straight from a 

coconut. Dirt roads lead to 
picturesque beaches easily 
reachable by dune buggy, while 
the more remote coves, for which 
guides are available, require 
hiking shoes. On a quiet day, I 
could easily be the only one 
enjoying a gorgeous beach.

Every morning at the Baia dos 
Golphinos, dozens of spinner 
dolphins (left) hurl themselves 
from the water for your viewing 
pleasure. One of the many 
spectacular sunsets (above), 
viewed from the iconic Mergulhao 



the island). Diving can be had all year, but is best on the windward side 
from December to March and on the leeward side from July to October. 
A popular dive site is the tpiranga, the wreck of a small Brazilian 
warship that hit a rock and sank in 1987. A deep jaunt intended for 
experienced divers, ii sits uprighl and intact at 63 metres down, 
surrounded by schools of fish. A highlight is seeing the sailors' personal 
effects that remain, including uniforms still hanging in the lockers. Also 
popular is Sapata Cave, an underwater cave 25 metres down, with an 
antechamber so spacious it's been the site for weddings. 

Nature lovers can get a thrill by taking an afternoon tender ride to 
Baia dos Golfinhos (Bay of the Dolphins), in the hope of seeing dozens 
of the spinner dolphins that swim south to hunt in deep water. Projeto 
Tamar, an organisation aimed at protecting sea turtles, has a base here 
and, with turtle sightings a regularity, its work seems to be paying off. 

One of the best ways to enjoy Fernando is simply to sail around it. 
Luckily- T was here to do just that. The sea view was ideal to take in the 
spectacular terrain. A common traveller's crutch, I was inclined to 
compare this island to somewhere else in my memory bank, but I kept 
coming up short. There was something different about this far-flung 
volcanic isle. Cliffs ebbed and fell haphazardly, beaches were almost 
unbelievably innocent and bays formed jigsaw shapes, as if broken off 
from a larger puzzle. It's no wonder Fernando de Noronhas unique 
beauty earned it a designation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 



It wasn't always recognised for its good looks, however. Italian 
explorer Amerigo Vespucci first described the island in 1501, bui 
discovery and naming is credited to Portuguese merchant Fernao de 
Loronha in 1502. Invaded, occupied and occasionally abandoned by the 
French, English, Dutch and Spanish over the centuries, in the 18th 
century the Portuguese took control. They built fortresses at key points 
on the island, several of which are intact and can be viewed from the 
sea or toured on foot. With independence in 1822, the islands finally 
became part of Brazil - which used Fernando for a prison and military 
training grounds, long before turning it into an ecologically protected 
tourist destination. 

The island offers myriad deep, protected bays in which to drop 
anchor, though for ecological reasons some portions allow mooring 
only during the day. Most yachts spend the night in the populous main 
harbour, rocking gently under the commanding Morro do Pico, which 
translates simply as Ml of the peak'. It's not the most creative name, 
admitted Fabio. the head chef at Pousada Maravilha, a beautiful hotel 
that features one of the notable restaurants on the island. 

As many are drawn to cast off the 'real world' and move to the 
Caribbean, so many Brazilians and the occasional European escape to 
Fernando to enjoy a simple island life. 'It's a paradise for so many things 
here: fauna, dolphins, and turtles. Also a surfers' paradise,' said Fabio. 
'You sometimes feel isolated, but the island pushes you to do a lot 
of activities.' 

A favourite pastime, though, is enjoying no activity at all. Sipping 
caipirinhas at Mergulhao, the open-air restaurant overlooking the 
harbour, was the ideal wind-down after an exciting afternoon 
of sailing. 

Perhaps as hunger pains grew we'd take off in the dune buggy, 
heading for a hidden gem of a restaurant; or maybe we d just while the 
time away here, munching on delectable coconut shrimp and ceviche 
and watching the sun slip behind Morro de Pico, bathing the 
entire bay in vivid oranges and pinks. There was nowhere to 
go, really - we were in Brazilian paradise, after all.

WHEN TO GO 

The dry/high season is from 
September to March; the rainy/low 
season runs from April to August, 
and features sunshine punctuated 
by torrential downpours. 

GETTING THERE 

The nearest mainland ports are the 
Brazilian cities of Natal I210nm] and 
Recife (300nm), while Rio de Janeiro 
is 1,300nm away. Gol Air Transport 
offers flights from Recife and Natal 
to Fernando de Noronha Airport. 

MARINE SERVICES 

There are no marinas on the island 
and provisioning options are limited. 
Arrive well-stocked and prepare to 
be self-sufficient. 

SUPERYACHT FACILITIES 

The nearest marina accommodating 
yachts up to 50m is in Fortaleza, 
about 350nm distant. Onshore 
accommodation there is available 
at Marina Park Hotel. 

HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS 

No facility on the island offers high- 
end luxury, and you may find the 
best accommodation is on your own 
boat. Pousada Maravilha offers five 
bungalows and three 'deluxe 
apartments' and the restaurant is 
one of the island's best. 



Pousada Ze Maria offers luxurious 
bungalows and the most beautiful 
location of any hotel. The popular 
restaurant is open every day and 
there's a 'gastronomical festival' 
every Wednesday and Saturday. 
Mergulhao, an open-air restaurant, 
overlooks the harbour and provides 
perhaps the finest dining experience 
on the island. 

Freshly caught barracuda and 
fabulous sunsets can be found at 
Bar do Meio on Meio Beach, while 
Pousada Teju-Acu is another high- 
end option, and Cacimba Bistro offers 
the best meals out in the village. 

GETTING AROUND 

With the road quality variable, a 
dune buggy is the most practical 
option for exploring the island. You 
can hire one at Flor do Atlantico. 

SANCHO BAY 

One of the island's most beautiful 
bays, with a secluded beach. Diving 
or snorkelling is rewarded with 
coral, fish, turtles and even the odd 
friendly (or so the locals claim] shark. 

BEACHES 

Among a plethora of unspoilt 
beaches (this is a marine reserve], 
try Conceicao Beach, with its long 
shoreline, and the lovely Porcos 
Bay, while Leao Beach and Sancho 



Beach are known as the some of the 
best beaches in Brazil. At Atalaia 
Beach natural pools form 
fascinating mini-aquariums. 

DOLPHIN WATCHING 

Spinner dolphins - so called 
because they jump clear of the 
water in acrobatic spirals - turn up 
in their hundreds daily. To see the 
show, be at Dolphin Bay at dawn, 
either on your yacht or a dune buggy 
on the cliffs above the bay. 

SNORKELLING 

A snorkel off any beach is 
rewarding, but a local guide can 
help you find the best spots, 
especially for turtle spotting. 
Shallow and protected from wind, 
Baia do Sueste is a natural 
snorkelling haven. 

DIVING 

The corvette warship Ipiranga, to 
the island's south west, is one of 
Brazil's star wreck-dives, but there 
are more than 25 sites to choose 
from, including the Sapata Cave and 
the Greek wreck Eliane Estatatus, 
which is in such shallow water some 
swim to it from shore. With the 
island's warm, clear water and calm 
conditions, you are practically 
guaranteed a good dive and an 
abundance of marine life. Only three 
operators are allowed to operate 
here - Aguas Claras has a good 
reputation - so there are never 
many people in the water. 

LANGUAGE 

English usage is patchy so don't 
forget your Portuguese phrasesbook. 

EXTRAS 

The environment preservation tax 
increases the longer you stay, and 
costs about US$20 per day. Those 
arriving by boat pay an anchor tax too. 
Check what sunscreen you can 
wear. The environmental laws and 
proximity to coral mean its use is 
restricted. li

MARKET INTELLIGENCE /ANALYSIS 



m dbbuudiiun wiin 



FRASER YACHTS 



Competition and urgency encouraged price reductions in October, 
while buyers approached builds with caution. But as confidence 
slowly increases, the future looks bright even for construction 



Reports of price updates reached an extraordinary 

75 in October, the highest figure in 2010 or 2011. It can be 

Compared to 48 in October 2010 - since when many brokers agree that 
things have improved. 

It is likely that October's figure was heavily influenced by the Fort Lauderdale 
Boat Show ljust as it is probable lhat September's 65 were influenced by the 
Monaco show] with brokers trying to draw attention to their yachts. 

But in the first 10 months of 201 1 there were more price drops overall than 
by the same point the previous year 1545 to 360). One reason may be that 
there were more yachts for sate, forcing down prices. The flow of existing 
yachts to the market certainly appears steady, with 45 reported in October 
compared with 44 the month before and similar figures for the rest of the 
year. By comparison, 14 were sold in September and 16 in October. A crowded 
marketplace, combined with a seasonal ultimatum to sell yachts, means we 
are likely to see high numbers of updates in November's stats too. 

'Having finished the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the last 
of the big boat shows, we are entering a quiet period until the start of the 
Mediterranean spring,' says Darrell Hall, co-founder and sales broker 
at YACHTZOO in Monaco. If an owner has not sold his vessel prior to the 
commencement of this period, it is most likely that he will retain ownership 
and carrying costs through to the following spring, detrimentally affecting 
the value of his yacht. Some owners may need to dispose of their assets prior 
to the end of the fiscal year due to potential tax consequences.' 

But Antoine Larricq, a broker at Fraser Yachts, believes some owners may 
be preparing to jump straight back into the market. 'Brokers have always 
faced the situation when their client is ready to buy a yacht but they need to get 
rid of their previous yacht,' he says. 'Now we have owners selling older yachts 
and to buy what they want, they have to lower the price of their current yacht.' 

New orders 

October brought eight reports of new orders, a figure in keeping with August's 
five and July's three, and probably a more helpful gauge of the construction 



market than September's seemingly anomalous 17. In terms of investing in a 
superyacht, charter is the lowest point on the scale of commitment, while new 
construction is the highest. As clients return to the market after being shaken 
by the GFC, it seems likely that they'll want to test the water before diving in. 
Indeed while our new order numbers were modest, Hall believes that the 2011 
charter markel was more robust than it was in the preceding three years. 

'Historically, when there has been an increase in charter, the sales market 
follows and this eventually filters through to new builds. Any educated buyer 
is now taking advantage of the highly competitive pre-owned market - they 
are looking there first,' he says. 'The other important thing is clients don't 
want to purchase a vessel in today's market and then find that they're going to 
lose double-digit percentages when they sell. Buyers have become realistic 
in their expectations of the market and they are entering it in a cautious way.' 

Deliveries and launches 

Deliveries slipped from 17 reports in September to 10 in October - although 
these figures also dropped off towards winter 2010, suggesting a seasonal 
trend. The same may be true of launches, which after a steady year dropped 
from 13 in August to six in September and six in October - a pattern similar to 
that of the previous year. 

It is worth remembering that current delivery and launch figures are the 
blighted fruit of orders made during the darkest days of the GFC. Following 
this logic, Larricq believes that as the new build sector slowly regains health 
(and despite the uninspiring new build figures above, they are increasing 
slowly], we can look forward to more bountiful crops in the future. 

'The yards have been finding new contracts since 2010, but we had a gap 
from October 2008 where not much happened,' he says. 'Most of the yards 
now have delivery dates of 2014 or 2015 for anything over 40 or 50 metres. 
Because of the gap it's going to be quiet in delivery until 2013. But because of 
the recent activity - most of those yachts have been signed between 2010 and 
2011 - in 2013 they're going to bring out a lot of yachts.'

Uber sharp Rob Humphreys design with dead flash graphics and great maple 
innards. From 2007, she's a wow on the charter circuit and sails like a train on 
tracks. Absolutely must be sold, are we giving too much away if we say that 
her new owner will definitely be a smart cookiel? 




Gleaming from zatch to guggle, her skipper is a nautical magician. Born 
2005, she has absolutely everything that it takes to fulfill her dual roles of 
regatta yacht and bluewater cruiser. A handy container houses her wardrobe 
(the size of which would put Shirley Bassey to shame), of the first quality she 
excels in both roles. 





126' Schooner 



€2.5m + VAT 
West Mediterranean 




A baby from 2003, she has been faithfully created from lines drawn by the 
incredible, iconic, William Fife Junior, a gentler age ago. Rosewood and teak 
interior, achingly beautiful exterior; a legend made flesh and with head turning 
abilities that not many yachts can equal.
